Why did Britain have the goal of controlling the Dardanelles?
A. To cut off German naval bases in the Black Sea
B. To open shipping routes with Russia
C. To limit the authority of the Ottoman Empire
D. To give the French Navy an escape route
Britain viewed an attack on the Dardanelles to be important as it would give Russia a supply route which might encourage Bulgaria and Roumania to join the allied side. The Russian plea for assistance, coupled with a perception of the Ottoman Empire as a weak enemy, made the prospect of a campaign in the Dardanelles seem appealing.
