Anatolia and the Middle East
The Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic
The War of Independence
Fallowing the Armistice of Mudros Thrace, the Middle East, Eastern Anatolia and Armenia were under military occupation of the Great Powers. Instability in the Empire, the fail of the Jihad started in 1914 and the final harsh terms of the Armistice led to huge anti-Ottoman and anti-imperialist sentiment. On the 22nd of June 1919 the Turkish National Movement was created and the War of Turkish Independence officially started. The Ottoman Emperor Mehmed VI executed members of the CUP thus the Sultan regained initiative. Members of the Imperial Government were also imprisoned by the British in Malta, Constantinople was under complete Allied control and the Imperial Government lacked stability. The Fallowing years the Ottoman Empire lost complete control of the situation. The National Movement officially started the Independence War in September 1919 tho skirmishes between the Turks and Allied Forces have never ended since the Armistice of Mudros and the Greek-Turkish war started since May. The Turkish National Movement declared the Government of the Grand National Assembly later that year. In Order to counter the republican armies Mehmed VI created the Kuvâ-i İnzibâtiyye under the command of Cevat Çobanlı Pasha and Süleyman Şefik Pasha but they managed to get only 5000 royalists in the Army by early 1920. Their cooperation with invading Greek forces and the Entente occupation doomed its fate. The Great Offensive was a disaster for the Turkish National Movement with over 50 000 losses for the Turks. Mehmed VI saw no other chance for Turkey but a cooperation with the Turkish National Movement and the Grand National Assembly accepted this due to the losses in the Great Offensive. On the 24th of December when the Allied Forces were celebrating Christmas the Constantinople Putsch took place. Mehmed's Kuvâ-i İnzibâtiyye oppened fire at the Allied Forces in Constantinople, at the same time they evacuated Turkish POW's held at the Selimiye Barracks.
By the 2nd of January 5 000 Ottoman Turk forces were holding control of the city but the Ottoman Sultan was imprisoned by the British and transported by a plane to Edirne. The 2nd Great Offensive started on the 15th of January and this time Smyrna was taken by the Turkish and Ottoman Forces on the 3rd of February. By the 10th of February the Ottoman Army was approaching Edirne and the shaken Allied forces accepted and armistice. The Treaty of Constantinople was signed on the 11th of March 1923 and the former Treaty of Sèvres was nullified. The terms of the Treaty were milder but the Former Ottoman Empire was still partitioned. The Greeks would no longer gain the territory of Izmire (Smyrna), the Italians would no longer gain Lycia and Armenia would gain a smaller portion of Land. The Former Ottoman regions from the Middle East would either gain independence (Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Arabia) or become western Protectorates (Palestine, Lebanon).
