May 1915

I have been neglecting Inuit Panda readers in favour of my World War 1 live blog. May 1915 proved a destructive month, with the first successful use of poison gas in warfare at Ypres and other bloody battles on the Eastern and Western Fronts. Allied hopes of a quick victory in Gallipoli were dashed while in Anatolia the Ottoman Empire began to eliminate its Armenian majority. The last Liberal government in Britain fell. Italy entered the war on the Allied side and the sinking of the Lusitania made the war something that could no longer be ignored in the United States.
