Correct response: What is Gallipoli?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Gallipoli was a disaster for the British Empire forces, as they were soundly defeated by the defending Ottoman forces. The political repercussions included a collapse of the British governing coalition, and thousands of Australian and New Zealander soldiers were killed at Gallipoli. April 25, the anniversary of the landings, are still commemmorated as “Anzac Day” and are more significant than Armistice Day/Remembrance Day for commemmoration of military casualties in Australia and New Zealand.
On the other side, it was the only major Ottoman Empire victory in World War I, it was seen in many Turkish circles as the “last hurrah” of the Ottoman Empire. Kemal Ataturk, the first President of the Republic of Turkey, gained prominence as a result as being a commander at Gallipoli.
