WW1: Gallipoli Snow



A funny thing happened during the retreat from Gallipoli. Snow fell on the evacuating troops. This bout of cold and snow killed nearly 300 troops and thousands suffered frost bite. It was if the gods were sending the final note to the Allies to leave and recognize their failure.

The Gallipoli campaign was a disaster concocted by the ZOG champion Winston Churchill.

The Gallipoli campaign was an example of imperial hubris. It was conducted by a British Empire at its apogee against an Ottoman one at its lowest point.

In no other circumstances would anyone have attempted an assault as tactically unsound as that.
