A rich vein on the Gallipoli landings

An engaged 395 student found a great siteon the Gallipoli landings, concentrating on the Australian/New Zealand experience there. Be sure to visit and do some reading in the various sections. Living history at its best, available to you 24/7.

FYI to all 395 people: We have secured the auditorium for our showing of the Peter Weir film "Gallipoli" for tomorrow(5-7), Monday and the following Wednesday--Valentine's Day-- when we will take a break from the misery of stalemate and mass death to watch Laurel Piippo's slides of Croatia and Slovenia. There's actually a connection there to the World War...you will see up close and personal why these areas were so attractive to both Italians and Croats, Slovenes and Serbs from the Habsburg Monarchy.
