Map of the southern section of the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey, showing main features, landing beaches and approximate front lines as of August 1915.

The objectives for the first day were the line Gaba Tepe - Hill 971 - Mal Tepe in the Anzac Sector and a line through Achi Baba to the coast east and west in the Helles sector.
The Anzacs were intended to have been landed south of Hell Spit.

The Helles sector (the 'toe' of the Peninsula) was held by the British on the left, with the right-hand side (looking from this viewpoint) held by the French Corps Expeditionnaire d'Orient.
