Sign in to follow this  

The Turkish Navy ship "Nusret" saved the day in Çanakkale during World War I. The mines it laid stopped the allied naval advance through the Dardanelles, which was intended to subdue Constantinople and force Turkey out of the war. It was a true "David and Goliath" story. There is a replica of this ship at the Çanakkale Naval Museum. The actual ship is depicted in these photos. There is also a small museum devoted to the battle of Gallipoli here.
