Dardanelles, before the victory it was seen as a dream that the Turks will never win.Dardanelles is the war of honor, faith and freedom against imperialism and colonialism. For these reasons Dardanelles is one of the epics written by the Turkish Nation in golden letters.Before the war, it was expected that the entente states will easily win in Çanakkale. The whole world thought that the struggle will take place on unequal conditions. English and French navy on one side; all kinds of weapons and equipment and on the other side the Turks, were defeated in the Balkan Wars, tired and possessed and the weapons manufactured during Abdülhamid time in the previous century. British soldiers and Captain Kitchener were so confident that they rejected the support of Prime Minister Churchill’s proposal.
The British saw Dardanelles as a place that will make them so famous on the world with their victory but they were wrong. Because it was not easy to broke the defenses of the Çanakkale. The attempt of go in the straits was a huge problem for the entente states because there were mines in the sea that is planted by the Turks. The Turks vanquished the entente states although there were really bad situations for the Turks for example hunger in the army, lack of weapons.
