ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in the East Mediterranean, early on the morning of April 25, 1915 during World War I (1914-1918).

Overtime journalists did away with the acronym ANZAC and simply use the name Anzac.
