In the 1930s, after the Battle of Gallipoli, President Ataturk received a letter from the mothers of the fallen ANZAC soldiers requesting permission to visit the graves of their sons. In response he sat down and wrote this poignant letter to the women. Ataturk later used these same words in a speech to the first Australians, New Zealanders and British to visit the Gallipoli battlefields.

Germany's first battlecruiser, SMS Von der Tann, on trials in 1910: at 27 knots the world's fastest capital ship. A response to the British 'Invincibles', she was notably better protected albeit less powerfully armed (11 in rather than 12 in guns). At Jutland she destroyed the battlecruiser HMS Indefatigable within 10 minutes of opening fire.

Bouvet sinking on March 18, 1915. Her position compared with the shoreline shows how fast it happened. The loss of this ship was not a result of hitting the mine – as almost all historians still believe – but of the Turkish artillery fire.
