Abstract

The Allied Powers threatened and bombed İstanbul with their Navy and Air Forces in the Gallipoli Campaing in order to disqualify The Ottoman Empire from the war and capture İstanbul. The destructions during the war and the precautions taken by The Ottoman Empire are the main issues in this study. We have aimed at making an original study for bringing to light the dangers that İstanbul, the capital city, faced during the war by utilizing the archival documents and the newspapers of that time as our basic reference resources.
