Gallipoli: Myths and Memories in a transnational perspective

Segesser, Daniel Marc (29 October 2015). Gallipoli: Myths and Memories in a transnational perspective (Unpublished). In: Ottoman Cataclysm: Total War, Genocide and Distant Futures in the Middle East (1915-1917). Zürich. 29.10.2015.

The battle of Gallipoli as it is known in Europe and South Asia or the battle of Çannakkale as it is known in modern Turkey was a seminal battle for many nations, not because it was decisive for the course of the war, but because it played a central role in regard to memory of the First World War in many nations. Based on photographic evidence and research by colleagues from many countries this contribution will focus in a transnational perspective on the participation of British, Indian, Australian and New Zealand troops in the campaign and especially on myths and memories on the side of the Entente from 1916 onwards.
