Gallipoli Battlefields

The Dardenelles 1915

The battlefields at Gallipoli were for many years difficult to reach and hostile to visitors – in more ways than one! Today modern Turkey is very different and a visit to Gallipoli is a pleasure – but still a great adventure compared to France and Flanders. These pages provide information gathered over many years studying the campaign, and numerous visits to the Gallipoli battlefields, including filming I did with the BBC in 2003 and a recent trip to Gallipoli in May 2006 with a group from Leger Holidays.

The latest Gallipoli updates are found here.
