Episode 25: Gallipoli Part 1

1915 Gallipoli

This episode will be the first of what I believe to be five episodes on the Dardanelles slash Gallipoli campaign and today we will look at the events leading up to the first shot being fired by Royal Navy battleships off the coast of the Dardanelles before moving into the events of February and March 1915 that saw the Royal Navy, with some French help, try to force the straits using nothing but ship and shell.
