Place Anzac Beach
Category Invasion

This acronym formed from the first letters of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps also evolved as a location or place name in its own right. As a shortened version of ANZAC Cove, the name defined the area initially occupied by Australian and New Zealand troops near Ari Burnu (north of Gaba Tepe) on the western side of the Gallipoli peninsula following the landings of 25 April 1915. Ultimately, the term ANZAC denoted this specific theatre of operations as well describing collectively the Australian and New Zealand personnel who served there.
