If it was possible to have a great war then Mustafa Kemal certainly had a great war. I am sure I speak for all of us that have been able to venture to the Gallipoli battlefields to say we have the utmost respect for his memory.

A good general but, as far as I know, an excellent political leader and the father of modern Turkey. His establishment of a true representative government in Asia Minor was an important acheivemnet.
