Storyline

As dawn breaks on April 25, 1915, ANZAC troops go into battle on the beaches of the Gallipoli peninsula. Landing in the dark chaos, Tolly, Bevan and their mates struggle to establish a tenuous foothold on the treacherous slopes and deep ravines. They endure the next eight months on the peninsula learning lessons of survival. By the time of the final evacuation they have also learned the skills of combat and what it means to be a young man in war. Written by ahmetkozan

This will work for now.
14 March 2015 | by turindebroucheSee all my reviews

First of all, Gallipoli campaign was one of the most epic battle in WWI. As we all know the total casualties of both side almost 500.000 man including my grandfather's uncle.

Considering these informations, the series look like pale in comparison to reality mostly because of the budget i suppose. if they could manage to increase the budget it would be much more satisfying, so we don't have to see maximum 15 dead body lying down in a battle like that.

I also made a quick research about the casts, especially the Turkish actors. And I never heard of them before. I made this research because of their accent, I am Turkish but some of them did not even sound like Turk.There are lots of Turkish actors which can participate in a production like this and that would be much better. Also I think that the actor, who plays Mustafa Kemal is a bit inadequate and doesn't look like him as well.

So in conclusion, while the main characters and the Australian & New Zellander characters are well placed and good in acting, Turkish characters are not. Musics are so so, could be better. And the story looks like progressing well for now.
