100 years ago today, the Battle of Gallipoli started

A sound strategic idea, well conceived, poorly executed by the allied leadership, and bravely fought by ANZAC and Turk soldiers. 

For some reason I associate this battle with the Boer War.  Mainly because the movie Gallipoli came out at about the same time as Breaker Morant and they both involved Australians.
