It looks like a very interesting site MS.

I did notice a possible mistake on its BEF page...http://rosalielebel75.franceserv.com...itannique.html

They have the following picture labelled as Sir John French but I'd be willing to bet this is really Kitchener...

We'll be lucky if Americans remember it at all. Sadly military history is no longer a popular subject, nor even taught very much in schools these days. Not PC enough.

This one hour Epic History documentary provides useful information wrt WW1.



What we can see from WW1 is the age of Empires....The Austro-Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Empire, British Empire, Russian Empire, German Empire for example were involved in WW1.

I take interest in the Ottoman involvement of WW2. It has been said that the once greatly respected Ottoman Empire which had the strength to sack Constantinople....had turned into the old sick man of Europe by WW1. There were nonetheless a # of victories scored by the Ottomans during WW1, perhaps showing there old glory.

Turkey's leaders on Friday celebrated the 100th anniversary of a rare victory by the Ottoman army in World War I against British-led forces in today's Iraq, urging modern Turks not to forget the exploits of their Ottoman forefathers.

The surrender by a British-led force at the garrison in Kut al-Amara (Kut in modern Iraq) is seen as the last Ottoman victory of the war, which ended in the defeat of the Empire and its German allies.

What truly stands out to me wrt WW1 was that the was the first time in 600+ years that a Christian force had regained Jerusalem... Of course the British knocked the Ottoman Empire out of Palestine during WW1.

On the morning of this day in 1917, after Turkish troops move out of the region after only a single day s fighting, officials of the Holy City of Jerusalem offer the keys to the city to encroaching British troops.

Field Marshal Allenby giving a speech in Palestine

I would be interested in reading what British medievalists of the WW1 era were saying of Mandatory Palestine. The fact that after suffering defeat 700 plus years earlier during the Third Crusade, the British finally had secured during WW1 what they had sent out many years to do before.

Colmar, baron von der Goltz was a German Officer in the service of the Ottoman Empire during WW1. Goltz was a non Muslim whom earned the praise and respect of his Ottoman soldiers. Goltz scored a notable victory against his British counterpart, Sir Charles Townshend, at the Battle of Ctesiphon(close to present day Baghdad)
