Thank you,

JH,

Askerlik Tarih Arflivler ve Stratejik EnstitiŁ = ATASE = Turkish General Staff Military Archives

This is the web-site of the TGS here http://www.tsk.tr/eng/index.htm but I regret that I have been unable, so far, to trace the Military Archives section.
I hope that Dogan will be back here soon to give us some more information.

Regards
Michael

Hi,

I had forgotton about this link :) sorry for late reply.

Basically, ATASE is responsible for research Archiving of Military History/Docxumentation, attached to Chief of Staff and has fundemental records.

The book on POW is titled " Canakkale Muharebelerinin Esirleri, İfadeler ve Mektuplar" Vol 1-2. ( POWS of Canakkale Wars, Testimonials and Letters ).

Book can be obtained through " ATASE Daire Baskanligi", or private book sellers such as http://www.pandora.c....aspx?id=197757. The book costs 20 TL if bought through ATASE but it seems 40 for each volume at private sellers.

Im sure googleing the title will yield some results.

regards
