Gallipoli: Drone video of WWI battlefield – BBC News



The BBC News drone was flown over the Gallipoli peninsula to capture the historic sites where so many died. Friday marks the start of commemorations around the world for those who died in the fight for the Turkish peninsula of Gallipoli. The forces of the Ottoman Empire repelled an attack from the British Army, soldiers from Commonwealth countries including Australia, New Zealand, India and Canada, and France.
Between April 1915 and the Allied withdrawal in January 1916, more than 130,000 men were killed on the two sides.
