Sabaton are a grammis-nominated power metal band from Falun, Sweden formed in 1999. The band's main lyrical theme is that of historical wars. This can be heard on the albums Primo Victoria and Attero Dominatus where all of the songs, except the final tracks, take inspiration from a historical battle or war and the two first mentioned are about WWII.

After the devastating 1354 earthquake, the Greek city was almost abandoned, but swiftly reoccupied by Turks from Anatolia, the Asiatic side of the straits, making Gallipoli the first Ottoman position in Europe, and the staging area for their expansion across the Balkans.

The peninsula, a part of the Byzantine Empire, was gradually conquered by the Ottoman Empire starting from 13th century onwards until the 15th. The Greeks living there were allowed to continue their everyday life. Gallipoli (in Turkish, Gelibolu) was made the chief town of a Kaymakamlik (district) in the vilayet (a Wali's province) of Adrianople, with about 30,000 inhabitants, Greeks, Turks, Armenians and Jews.

Gallipoli became a major encampment for British and French forces in 1854 during the Crimean War, and the harbour was also a stopping-off point on the way to Constantinople.

The peninsula did not see any more wars up until World War I when the British Empire allies trying to find a way to reach its troubled ally in the east, Imperial Russia, decided to try to obtain passage to the east. The Ottomans set up defensive fortifications along the peninsula with German help.

In 1920 after the defeat of the Russian White army of General Pyotr Wrangel, a significant number of emigre soldiers and their families evacuated to Gallipoli from the Crimea. From there many went to European countries where they found refuge, such as Yugoslavia. A stone monument was erected and a special "Gallipoli cross" was created to commemorate the soldiers who stayed in Gallipoli. The stone monument was destroyed during an earthquake, but in January 2008 reconstruction of the monument had begun with the consent of the Turkish government.

Cliffs Of Gallipoli


Галипоље (тур. Gelibolu Yarımadası, грч. Καλλίπολις, Χερσόνησoς Θράκια) је полуострво у турској Тракији, у европском делу Турске. Западно је Егејско море, док је на истоку мореуз Дарданели. Полуострво је дуго око 90 km (правац југозапад - североисток). Ширина му је до 20 km. Највиша тачка је на 420 метара.

Сама реч Галипоље потиче из грчког језика где Καλλίπολις значи „лепи град“.

После разорног земљотреса 1354. грчки град на полуострву је опустео, а населили су га Турци из Анадолије. Тиме је Галипоље постало прва турска насеобина у Европи и база за њихово освајање Балкана.

Галипоље је била база британских и француских снага које су се 1854. бориле у Кримском рату.

Полуострво је познато по Галипољској операцији у Првом светском рату (фебруар 1915— јануар 1916). У овој операцији Британци су, уз помоћ својих трупа из Аустралије и Новог Зеланда, покушали да побољшају савезничку позицију на истоку заузимањем турских мореуза и избацивањем Турске из рата. Турцима су у одбрамбеној стратегији помагали немачки војни стручњаци.
