From the Dolomites to the Dardanelles
In 1915, countless allied lives, mainly Australian and New Zealander, are wasted
in a vain attempt to advance toward Istanbul via the Gallipoli Peninsula and thus
to knock the Ottoman Empire out of the war. In the meantime, the Ottomans
also have to confront the Russians, and it is in this context that the Armenians
become the victims of a veritable genocide. Italy enters the conflict on the side of
the Entente, but suffers heavy losses. Bulgaria, on the other hand, joins the Central
Powers and thus a new front opens up deep in the Balkan Peninsula . . .
