Did you know the Gallipoli front was one of the worst military campaigns of WWI according to British veterans who served there? Neither did I, until I saw some random meme about it that I had to google to understand. Apparently, when the British weren't battling the Ottoman Empire on their turf, they were fighting fly swarms caused by rotting bodies, water shortages, blistering heat, lice, dysentery, and insufficient rations. Pretty nasty stuff. I'm sure there are plenty of history buffs rolling their eyes right now thinking, 'how did you not know about the Gallipoli campaign?' Well that's the great thing about history memes—not only do amateur history scholars of the internet get to feel good about themselves for getting the references, they can also be a fun gateway to learning about history for those less enlightened. Keep scrolling for some dank memes full of historical humor.
