19. Thats the impression in Australia as well...
The Battle of Gallipoli with the Turks is seen as the nation`s "coming of age" and occupies a similar place in Australian folklore as the Alamo does for Americans, albeit magnified about a hundredfold.

The Turks are seen by and large as "worthy adversaries" and all that tosh. Of course, at the same time that the Gallopoli battle was happening the largest massacre in the history of the near East was being waged by Turks against Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks. Somehow that hasnt been picked up on.
