The Gallipoli Campaign of 1915 involved an ambitious plan by Allied forces to open a way for the Imperial Fleet to reach Constantinople - now Istanbul - and push the Ottoman Empire out of the war.

Australian journalist Peter FitzSimons, who wrote 'Gallipoli', came into the Forces TV studio to talk about his work on the subject.
