Suvla Bay, Salt Lake

So to break the stalemates, how about another landing in August? Suvla Bay is the darker blue in the background, the salt lake is the pale color in the center. Troops were landed north of the ANZAC position, in Suvla Bay. The ANZACs and the Cape Helles troops also went over to the attack. The Suvla attack was hampered by an incompetent commander, and a late push to the high ground was repulsed. In the ANZAC sector, Allied troops were able to reach the high ground but were thrown back by a counterattack, again commanded by Mustafa Kemal.
