SMS Breslau (Ottoman Light Cruiser Midilli)

Recommended Posts

michaeldr

A good friend tells me that he has been lucky enough to have been invited to the General-Konsulat of the Federal Republic of Germany in Istanbul on Thursday evening, when the Battle of Imbros and specifically the Light Cruiser Breslau/Midilli will be remembered. A talk will be given by GWF member Colonel Klaus Wolf and the event will also feature the showing of a documentary on the subject by Savaş Karakaş (trailer https://youtu.be/8WVG4PqSJHQ)
