This study deals with the daily lives of soldiers in the Gallipoli Front during World War I. The battle in the Gallipoli Front lasted for nine months, and during this period, trenches became indispensable living areas for all soldiers. Digging and strengthening trenches were necessary daily activity for protection. This study examines the daily life and struggle in the trenches rather than the battle. Struggle against harsh weather conditions, against diseases, famine and water shortages are the main themes of this study. The study presents that technical and military superiority are not sufficient to win a war; logistic struggle behind the front can change the trajectory of a battle.
