Turkish Army

Postby AJK » 10 Sep 2003 21:22

I am looking for a list of commanders of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Armies (1. Ordu, 2. Ordu, 3. Ordu komutanlari) and Corps commanders (Kolordu komutanlari) of the Turkish Army during the period 1923 - 1945.

Any help that could be provided would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

AJK

As a follow-up question, does anyone have a list of the Deputy Chiefs of the General Staff (Genelkurmay Ikinci Başkani) during 1923 - 1945? I already have the Chiefs of the General Staff, but not the Deputies.

Many thanks in advance.
