Turkey in the First World War
In the First World War, men of the Ottoman Army fought on three continents,
not only for the Sultan or for the Empire, but to save and protect their homeland...
They fought on the land, on the seas and in the air...
Soldiers and civilians, men and women, young and old,
the entire population regardless of race and ethnicity...
They have not only resisted occupation, but also worked together
to build a new nation out of the ashes of a collapsed empire...
They were Turkey's bravest generation, and this is their story...
