Gallipoli War Essay

3493 words - 14 pages

History is witness to many wars that bring pain and sorrow for both of the sides that are fighting. War is a frame of demise, horror and fear, which is drawn by the unsatisfaction of the countries and great desires of the leaders. Gallipoli is also a good example for these wars which resulted with millions of deaths and huge destruction. Our artwork,the movie named Gallipoli, is a marvellous film that vividly depicts the tragedic side of Gallipoli War, mostly from the Anzac side. On the other hand in the war part, the rivals apart from Anzacs are examined in detail.As a result the reader of our research project for the cwill know a lot about Anzacs and their perpective before, during and after the war while the reader will also have an idea about the other sides in general. In conclusion, the reader will learn a lot from all perspectives and will be satisfied with the content.In the artwork part, we tried to show the conflicts between Anzacs and England generally and the countries decisions on usage of allied countries just for their own benefit in general. Also the fact that war is not a good thing is emphasized in the artwork part of the project. In the war part, apart from stating that war is definitely a bad thing, the basic goals of the important rivals and a conflict with in England is discussed.

Unfortunately, most of the time, these events were nothing but the cruel wars that resulted in the loss of millions of people and in waste of huge amount of money. Like every other war, World War 1 took many lives and money and changed the balances in the world. Actually, these big wars are usually emerging to change the balances because some sides don't like the world to stay as it is. In the Gallipoli War, which was a part of the World War 1 there were different sides which were joining the war for different reasons and goals. Likely, their achievements were different, too. Some could reach few of the things they have planned before, while some could reach none of their goals. The following pages that will be about the Gallipoli War that took place during the World War 1 will not include all of the sides that entered this war. There will be the main countries or alliances that played the major role in the Gallipoli War process. Germany, Ottoman Empire, Great Britain, France, New Zealand and Australia and Russia are the most important countries that existed in the name of Gallipoli War. As my research question was about the goals of the rivals and the ones that were achieved at the end of the war, an important...
