A country that believed in death and endangered it because of its faith changed the course of history here 107 years ago. The Galipoli War is a great heroic epic that demonstrates the high virtues of our country, including patriotism, self-sacrifice, and courage. The most powerful army in the world has been defeated. It has become clear that there is no power to compete with a country that has decided to save its life and protect its hometown. The Turkish people have given hope to all those oppressed by their unique struggle. The victory of Canakkale on March 18 is not only our victory, but also the joint victory of hundreds of millions of brothers from the Balkan Peninsula to Africa and from Europe to Asia. This illustrious victory is the victory of Turkey, the Turkish people, and the oppressed people who turned their eyes and hearts to our country. Not only are there tombs of heroes from all states, districts, and almost every village in Turkey. There is also a tomb of a martyr who came from every corner of our heart and fell to the ground here.
