March 18

March 18 All day

Not to be confused with Anzac Day, March 18 is the day that in 1915 the Ottoman forces (led by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk) won the Battle of Gallipoli against the Allied forces. While not an official holiday, this is the day the Turks commemorate this legendary and symbolic nearly 11-month battle that took place along the Dardanelles.
