Cesaret Tepe

This key position defended vigorously by both side saw repeated attacks across this narrow ridge. The ANZAC trenches were located close to the cemetery. The Turkish trenches originated near to the raised stone memorial on your right and ran in 8 tiers to the top of the first hill (Baby 700). A courageous but futile attack by the Australians was made on August 7, 1915, when over 300 were killed in the area immediately in front of you.

Her iki tarafın da büyük gayretle savuduǧu bu kılıt mevzi, dar sayır üzerinde sık sık saldırılara şahit oldu. Anzak siperleri mezarlıǧa yakın yerdeydi. Türk siperleri saǧınızda bulunan siyah abideden başlayarak, ilk tepenin (kabak sırtı) sonuna kadar 8 sıradan oluşmaktaydı, 7 Aǧustos 1915 günü Avustralyalılar cesur fakat başarısız bir saldırıda bulundular ve 300 kişilik kayıp verdiler.
