During the World War I, which occurred between1914-1918, the number of soldiers who died of starvation and infectious diseases is as many as the number of soldiers who fell in battle.

In this article, the trials and tribulations the Turkish military encountered during the World War I especially in Syria, Iraq, Hedjaz, Palestine and Yemen have been tried to be revealed.
