Naval operations in the Dardanelles campaign

The naval operations in the Dardanelles campaign (17 February 1915 – 9 January 1916) took place against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The Ottoman defence and in particular their naval mines defeated the naval operation. Dardanelles defences [ edit ]In August 1914, the Outer Defences were two fortresses at the end of the Gallipoli peninsula and two on the Asiatic shore. Fort Dardanos was the main work which had two new 6-inch naval guns and the rest contained ten small quick-firing guns with shields. With a few spectacular exceptions, the performance of naval guns on land targets was inadequate, particularly against entrenched positions.
