The objective of the landing forces during the Gallipoli Campaign was, after having captured the high ground of the dry land, approach Narrows from the rear and get control of the castles and batteries on each shore of the Dardanelles.
We begin our tour at the Narrows, the narrowest point of Dardanelles. After having a fast look there so as to urge the essence of the Narrows, we carry on our tour to go to the landing beaches.
