Feature of this diary; Beyond the daily memories of a staff officer who served as division, corps, and army staff in World War I; It is a cross-section of Atatürk's life. For this reason, the diary reflects Atatürk's diary in a way. It is a total of 27 notebooks daily. We see that General Çalışlar uses every notebook he finds in order not to disturb his diary.
