1⁄35Anzac Cove - Gallipoli 1915
New Zealand and Australian troops took part in the Gallipoli Landings on 25th April 1915. The plan to capture the Ottoman forts in the Dardanelles never really got off the ground, the troops went ashore in the wrong place and the whole landing bogged down very quickly. Some 20,000 troops were pinned down on the beach in an area of about three quarters of a mile square and remained there for a bloody 8 months. The area became known as Anzac Cove. This small vignette from Firestorm Models depicts some of those events and this is my representation of the set, with some small additions and extended ground work.
The last remaining ANZAC troops were finally evacuated on 20th December 1915, the evacuation being much more successful than the original landings.
