How the Gallipoli campaign ended badly for the ANZACS - PEEL paragraph example
The Gallipoli campaign ended very badly for the troops, Australia and the whole allied forces however there were some factors that the commanders of the Anzacs failed to notice that went wrong and eventually led to the failure of the whole campaign. The main reason why the failure of the campaign occurred was due to the lack of planning and poor command by the leaders of the invasion force. The commanders overlooked the fact that the enemy had more troops than the invading force, higher ground, ready to go artillery than the ANZAC’s the ANZAC’s had only one fifth of the invading force that the ottomans had this basically ensured defeat for the Anzacs before the invasion had even begun. The campaign also failed because of the lack of planning and studying of the area of the landing site. The ANZAC’s landed multiple kilometres north of where they should have and this severely impacted on the battle geography and the ability of the troops to fight like what they trained for and it made it much harder for them to advance. The should have sent a small spy force to locate key value targets and possible landing sites for the landing force then they should have been there during the landing to direct boats to the right landing spots. This would have prevented the failed landing at the wrong spot on the peninsula and given the force a better chance of pulling of victory in the face of the ottomans. This would have changed events by allowing the increased number of troops to push further and quicker into the enemy lines reducing the ground that the enemy has and having a better chance to reach high ground and gain an advantage against the ottomans. The better command, planning and the spy force would have also ensured that the force landed in the best possible spot and located high value targets like artillery to be attacked by supporting battleships and ground forces allowing forward forces to advance without the fear of artillery. If these changes were made it would have severely impacted on the success of the Gallipoli campaign and would have greatly contributed to the allied push into German occupied territory.
