Abstract

As it is known, although Akşehir is a county, it is an important settlement in Anatolia with regard to policy, economy, and strategy. There were also intensive activities during the National Struggle in Akşehir. It cannot be said that sufficient studies have been done on Akşehir, one of the important centres of Western front during the Turkish-Greek War. In this study, the relevant documents in the archives and other sources were scanned in order to determine the place of Akşehir in the National Struggle. Thanks to the field research method, some recollections were added to the literature and Vefayata Mahsus Vukuat Defterleri (The registers of the events related with the dead) were scanned and detailed information about the martyrs from Akşehir were brought to the light.
