Abstract

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. This situation is both the result of the coexistence of crowded military groups under bad conditions and the hitches of the war. In the great warfare, the Turkish army had casualties pretty much either. In this war, the Turkish military fought in many battlefronts, but, fighting became much more abrasive in the Arabian region to which they were unaccustomed on account of the geographical conditions. 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.
