Abstract

During the Turkish War of Independence and revolutions, we see that certain figures took place next to and against Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Some of his friends, who were next to him and started the National Struggle together, broke with each other as certain stages of the struggle developed and opposed him by standing against him. Atatürk explains his judgment about these people in the beginning of the great Nutuk, while discussing the purpose and scope of the Turkish Revolution.
