Was the Gallipoli evacuation a strategic success or the recognition of a failed strategy?
The evacuation from the Gallipoli peninsula has been described as the most successful part of the Gallipoli campaign. It was an unprecedented success with no loss of life to any army and enabled the Allied and Turkish forces to focus on battles that would actually make a difference. This is a source-based homework task that supports student understanding of the NSW syllabus for the Australian Curriculum
Stage 5
Depth Study 3: Australians at War
World War I & World War II
Students analyse a variety of primary and secondary, visual and written sources to determine whether the 1916 Gallipoli evacuation was a strategic success or the recognition that the whole Gallipoli campaign was a failed military strategy. What all armies learnt from their mistakes would make a logical follow-up classroom activity.
