    GWASL 8: GALLIPOLI AND BEYOND
    Aussies/ANZAC

    When war broke out in August of 1914, the news was met by wildly cheering crowds in Australia. Following some months of mobilization, the AIF exited the country in November 1914 and, after several delays due to the presence of German naval vessels in the Indian Ocean, arrived in Egypt. Their first task was to defend the Suez Canal. In early 1915, however, it was decided to carry out an amphibious landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula with the goal of opening up a second front and securing the passage of the Dardanelles. The Australians and New Zealanders, grouped together as the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), went ashore on 25 April 1915 and for the next eight months the Anzacs, alongside their British, French and other allies, fought a costly and ultimately unsuccessful campaign against the Turks. The force was evacuated from the peninsula in December 1915 and returned to Egypt, where the AIF was expanded. In early 1916 it was decided that the infantry divisions would be sent to France, where they took part in many of the major battles fought on the Western Front. Most of the light horse units remained in the Middle East until the end of the war, carrying out further operations against the Turks in Egypt and Palestine.
