61 Battle of Gallipoli (World War I, 1915-1916)

The most remembered battle for Australia, New Zealand and Turkey surly three countries remembering this should put this number one. All three lost many people and the ANZACs despite losing remember and respect the battle and opponents. It has also been made into many movies where it leaves you crying because the battle was just so horrific. I want Australians, New Zealanders and Turkish people to get behind me on this. This is the battle that gave all three nations a name and made us look capable and scary in battle.

When you read the stories about this battle, sadness is upon everywhere.

The ANZACs really proved themselves in this battle. Proud to be an Aussie.

62 Battle of Myeongnyang (Imjin War, 1597)

Statistically, the greatest naval victory in history. Admiral Yi was advised to regroup and provide Military Support for the remaining ground troops but instead the most miraculous victory against a superior Japanese naval fleet. Completely underrated for a battle that changed the course of history in the Asian peninsula and as a 10 to 1 Underdog one of the greatest upsets and battle history

The Battle of Myeongnyang was a naval battle between Chosun, an Ancient Korean Kingdom, and Japan. It was held in the southwest corner of the Korean Peninsula in October, 1597.
After a series of defeat from the Japanese, the Chosun navy was left with 13 ships in total and faced 133 Japanese ships. Using his clever naval tactics, Admiral Yi was able to destroy 31 Japanese ships, even with the shortage of ships, troops, and supplies.
