This contribution focuses on three military operations during the First World War on the Southern borders of the Central Powers, i.e. the amphibious landing of French, British, Australian, New Zealand, Indian and Colonial French forces in Gallipoli in April 1915, the so called „Intervento“ of Italy of May 1915 and the decision of Romania to join the war in August 1916. It discusses the factors that brought about these three strikes at what can be understood to have been a “soft underbelly” and wonders furthermore to what extent the decision makers were influenced by strategies that claimed that a quick victory was possible, if a firm decision was taken
