Deutschland über Allah!
Germany, Gallipoli and The Great War.

Australian historian John Wililams explores the alliance between Germany and the Ottoman Empire during the First World War and in particular the events during or around the time of the Gallipoli battle in 1915. Chapter 10 is titled 'Genocide on Gallipoli' and it explores the treatment of the Gallipoli Greeks by the Germano-Turkish alliance. As Williams writes:

There were 32,000 living on the Gallipoli peninsular in 1915. By 1919, the figure was nil, the vast majority of these former inhabitants now dead. However genocide is defined- in particular, however the distinction is drawn with ethnic cleansing-what happened on Gallipoli is surely an instance.
