For John, BLUF: Gallipoli was a turning point. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Today is ANZAC Day, a memorial day for Australia and New Zealand. The origin was honoring the travails of Australian and New Zealand troops, as the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (thus ANZAC) in the Battle of Gallipoli. This year is the 100th Anniversary.
Interestingly, on the Ottoman (Turkish) side, the hero is Mustafa Kemal Pasha (Atatürk).
