Çanak Bayırı

English:
New Zealand and British Forces climbed from the beach under cover of darkness and launched a surprise attack on this hilltop, capturing it on 8 August 1915. They held the area immediately around the New Zealand Memorial for 2 nights until, against constant and courageous counter-attacks the Turks retook the summit. As part of this offensive, British Forces landed 7 kilometers to the north at Suvla Bay and by mid-August most of the area between the foothills and Suvla was in Allied hands. The Turks however, held the vital high ground and never again were the Allies to view their goal - the Dardanelles.


Turkish:
Yeni Zelanda ve İngiliz askerleri gece karanlıǧında sahilden tırmanarak bu tepe üzerinden ani bir saldırı başlattılar ve 8 Aǧustos 1915 tarihinde tepeyi ele geçirdiler. İki gece süreyle müttefiklerin elinde kalan Yeni Zelanda anıtı civarındaki bölge Türk kuvvetlerinin cesur ve aralıksız saldırları sonunda geri alında. Bu taarruz sırasında İngiliz kuvvetleri 7 kn kuzeydeki Suvla körfezine çıktı ve Aǧustos ayı ortasına kadar bulunduğunuz yer ile Suvla körfezi arası müttefik kuvvetlerin kontrolündeydi. Öte yandan Türk kuvvetleri de statejik tepeyi bırakmadılar. Bu durum müttefiklerin Çanakkale boǧazını ele geçirme amaçlarının gerçekleşemeyeceǧi demekti.
