Black & white birds-eye view of the Gallipoli Peninsula. This pictorial map of Gallipoli shows the areas held at Suvla Bay, Anzac Cove, and Cape Helles. Presented in heroic terms, the Gallipoli withdrawal is portrayed by The Graphic is such a manner as to maintain public confidence in the progress of the war.

The map shows details of the ground won and held by the Australian and New Zealand ANZAC troops around Suvla Bay and Anzac Cove, and the British and French troops at Cape Helles, along with the numbers of casualties. Also of interest is a comparison of the area covered by Hyde Park in London with the ground held by troops during the Gallipoli campaign.

An explanation below the map of Gallipoli reads:

"The shifting centre of gravity in the Near East from the Dardanelles to Salonika and the Suez Canal zone - due to the entry of Bulgaria into the war - necessitated the evacuation of Gallipoli, and this wonderful operation was executed without the loss of a single life. Thus ends a most glorious chapter in our military history, for though all the advantages of position on high entrenched ground lay with the enemy, yet 100,000 men, with incomparable valour, maintained a magnificent offensive, and, in the words of Sir Ian Hamilton, "their progress was constant if painfully slow" in the restricted and exposed area held by us."
