The 1915 Dardanelles campaign during the First World War aimed to establish another front against Turkey such that allied forces could advance from the south to attack Germany. The main supporter of the scheme, Winston Churchill, called this attacking the ‘soft underbelly of Europe’. If the scheme had not failed as it did, then World War One would have ended perhaps two years earlier and Churchill might have become British Prime Minister 20 years earlier than he did. What do you think?
