Along with Australia, New Zealand remembers its war dead every year on Anzac Day (25 April). It marks the anniversary of the 1915 landing on Gallipoli, Turkey, of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). The landing was part of the ill-advised campaign, during the First World War, to capture the Dardanelles and force Turkey, which was an ally of Germany, into submission. Thousands of Australian and New Zealand troops were killed before the campaign was abandoned.
