The Impact of the Confiscation of the Turkish Dreadnoughts and of the Transfer of Goeben and Breslau to Constantinople upon the Turkish Entry into WWI

İngiliz Kraliyet Donanması’nda dönemin Birinci Deniz Lordu (müsteşarı) olan Winston Churcill, Birinci Dünya Savaşı’ndan önce Osmanlı İmparatorluğu tarafından sipariş edilen ve ödemesi yapılan iki dretnota el koydurmadan önce Goben (Yavuz) ve Breslav (Midilli) meselesinin gelişmesi ve Osmanlı İmparatorluğu’nun savaşa girmesi için gerekli zemini çoktan hazırlamıştı. Bu “korsanlık” (B. Tuchman), Türk Hükümeti içerisinde taşların yerinden oynamasına ve dengenin o ana kadar daha güçlü olan tarafsızlardan uzaklaşarak savaş yanlılarına, Harbiye Nazırı Enver Paşa’ya yönelmesine neden olmuştur. Eğer bu hata gerçekleşmeseydi, Yavuz ve Midilli asla Osmanlı’ya sığınmazdı. Bu iki savaş gemisi, Karadeniz kıyılarında bulunan Rus limanlarını bombaladıkları zaman Osmanlı’nın savaşa girmesinin temel nedeni olmuşlardır

Türk Dretnotlarına l Konulması ve Goben ile Breslav Gemilerinin İstanbul'a Transfer Edilmesinin Osmanlı Devleti'nin I. Dünya Savaşı'na Girişi Üzerindeki Etkisi

When Winston Churchill then First Sealord of the Royal Navy had the two Dreanoughts, ordered and paid for by the Ottoman Empire before World War I, confiscated he created the preconditions for the Goeben-and Breslau-affair and the entry of Turkey into the war. This “act of piracy” (B. Tuchman) shifted the weight from the so far stronger neutralists to the bellicists with in the Turkish Government towards war minister Enver. Without this mistake Goeben and Breslau would never have sought shelter in Turkey. And these two men of war were the reason for Turkey’s entry into the war when they bombarded Russian harbours in the Black Sea
