Arabia for Arabs: An ARRabia
Introduction

The roots of the Kingdom of Arabia lie in the ascension of the “Young Turks” to power in the coup of 1908. The nationalist, reformist party sponsored the change in the policy of the Ottoman Empire leading to increasing amounts of discrimination against non-Turkish ethic groups. Though not sudden the discrimination would become more and more of a problem to other ethnic groups, including Arabs. This discrimination was against anyone who wasn’t Turkish, Muslims and non-Muslims were affected.

After the Balkan Wars of 1912-1913 only the Armenians, Kurds and Arabs would be left fighting for independence from the Ottoman Empire. These three nations would have their struggles for independence intertwined…

Marlon Brando played the renegade and insane green beret in Apocalypse Now, who had come to view as horror not something to fear but as the best weapon in a war, and he died saying; the horror... the horror...

Chapter 1​
A Serbian Shot​

On June 28, 1914, Gavrilo Princip, a Serbian Nationalist assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand while he was visiting Sarajevo and no one, least of all most Arabs expected major repercussions for Arabia, but they were wrong. As Austria-Hungary attacked Serbia on July 28 and chaos and madness engulfed Europe, most expected the Ottomans to stay out of it. Thus were they surprised when on October 29 the Ottoman Empire in conjunction with Germany launched an attack on Russian Naval bases in the Black Sea. This amounted as a declaration of war against the Entente powers of France, The British Empire and The Russian Empire.


The Allied and Central Powers

The Entente powers soon started operations against the Ottoman Empire in the Sinai, Mesopotamia, Dardanelles and the Caucasus mountains. The Armenians of the Caucasus soon rejoiced as this was one of the only theaters the Russians were having success on and hopes for liberation were high. A clumsy ottoman attack was defeated by the Russian forces commanded by General Nikolai Yudenic, one of the most successful generals in the Russian Army during World War One. As the Russians were poised to liberate Eastern Anatolia and British armies looked to liberate Mesopotamia and Palestine the hour of freedom was at hand.

Chapter 2
The Caucasus Campaign 1914-1916

The main war aim of the Ottoman Empire in the Caucasus Theater was the recovery of the lands lost in the Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878. Enver Pasha, minister of war, would lead an attack merely a month after the declaration of war. At command of the 3’rd Army, officially 190,000 (but in reality between 90,000 and 190,000 strong) he would face an outnumbered Russian force commanded by Nikolai Yudenich; one of Russia’s finest generals of The Great War. Yudenich’s Army of 100,000 strong was reduced to approximately 60,000 after the Tannenberg disaster.

Though Yudenich’s Army was out numbered 40,000-130,000 his army had many advantages the Turkish army though large, was undersupplied, unequipped for winter and harassed by Armenian separatists. The two opposing armies met in battle at Sarikamis, near the Ottoman-Russian boarder. The battle was a monumental defeat of the Ottomans who suffered between 60,000 and 175,000 casualties out of an army of 90,000-190,000 strong. Enver Pasha, would never command troops on the field of battle again and leave strategy to the generals and German advisors who had warned against the battle. The battle completely destroyed Ottoman moral and the Caucasus front would be dominated by Yudenich’s army until the October revolution in 1917. Yudenich’s army would go on to complete the conquest of Eastern Anatolia including the important cities of Van, Tebezond, Erzurum and Erzican in the following year.
