When the beachheads were finally abandoned, after a year, some 21, British, 8, Australian and 2, New Zealand soldiers had died — for no discernible military gain. Bean had a tendency to omit anything that had exaggerated sentiment, or anything that dealt with the harsh realities of war without humour. Bean selected submissions that promoted the everyday challenges faced by the Anzac soldier.

      A French brigade landed on the Anatolian coast opposite, at Kum Kale, but was later withdrawn. Days later on the morning of March 18, British and French battleships entered the straits and launched an attack.
