Turkish Memorial

Forty meters high, and built near the tip of the peninsula, the memorial can be seen from quite a distance.

To the Turks, the campaign is known as "Çanakkale," not "Gallipoli."

Çanakkale geçilmez!

Çanakkale is impassable!

Indeed! After the failure of the August attacks, both sides settled down into more stalemated trench warfare, but with no major assaults. The Allied troops were withdrawn in December and January. But even before that, the British Cabinet was shuffled and Churchill lost the Admiralty and was out of the Cabinet until 1940.
