Gallipoli 1915: a century on

Presented by ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 remains one of the most controversial events of the First World War. One hundred years later, Gallipoli continues to arouse debate over its flawed strategy, the real or illusory opportunities of success, and the ultimate responsibility for its costly failure.

The Australian War Memorial Centenary Conference will be held in Llewellyn Hall at ANU from 18-20 March 2015. The collaboration between the Memorial and ANU has attracted an outstanding line-up of internationally renowned experts, historians, researchers and authors from around the globe.

Speakers include such authorities as Professor Sir Hew Strachan, Chichele Professor of the History of War at Oxford University; Professor Robin Prior of Flinders University, author of Gallipoli: the end of the myth; Professor Joan Beaumont of ANU (recently awarded the Prime Minister’s prize for Australian history for her book, Broken Nation: Australians in the Great War); and Mr Les Carlyon AC, author of the best-selling and prize-winning volumes Gallipoli and The Great War.
