The Dardanelles Front is only one of the fronts where the Ottoman Empire fought during the First World War. Naval wars were the first on this front be-cause the Allied States thought that they would achieve their aim with the na-val operations. However, due to the achievements of the Ottoman Navy, which was extremely weak compared to the enemy navy, especially the Nus-rat Mineship on March 18, this effort was fruitless and the Entente States de-cided to land. In the land wars, the Turkish nation once again said “Darda-nelles is Impassable sayesinde once again thanks to the heroism of the Otto-man troops, which were inadequate in number, and the genius of Mustafa Kemal Bey, who left the front as the hero of Anafartalar. In this research, the activities of the Ottoman Navy in the Dardanelles and their role in the War of the Straits were discussed. In addition, the characteristics and activities of the ships in the Ottoman Navy were evaluated.
