April 25th marks ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. On this date in 1915, the ANZAC forces landed on Gallipoli to take out Turkey. An eight month battle ensued but the ANZAC forces did not win.

ANZAC Day is celebrated annually on April 25th and marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand military forces during WWI. While originally intended to honor those who fought during WWI, it subsequently included those who lost their lives during WWII and eventually became a day for people to reflect on war and all those who have lost their lives at war.
