Located across from the Australian War Memorial at top of Anzac Parade. Worth reading the speech by Ataturk. Well worth a short visit before walking down Anzac Parade.

I'm not aware of any memorials of Hindenberg or Lundendorff in London or Paris so I believe this memorial to Ataturk, as the leader of the enemy forces, is probably unique. It's pleasant to see it and reflect on the common understanding that in war,...More
