Camel train at Cannakale, Turkey - Chanak Crisis Featured Print

Camel train at Cannakale, Turkey - Chanak Crisis

A camel train at Cannakale returned from provisioning the front line during the Chanak Crisis (Chanak Affair, Chanak Incident) - a war scare in September 1922 between Britain and Republic of Turkey. The incident was caused by Turkish efforts to push Greek forces out of Turkey to restore Turkish rule in the Allied occupied territories of Turkey. Turkish troops marched against British and French positions in the Dardanelles neutral zone, but the crisis quickly ended when Turkey, having overwhelmed the Greeks, agreed to a negotiated settlement that gave it the territory it wanted. There was no war. Due to his perceived mishandling of the crisis the incident led to the downfall of Prime Minister David Lloyd George. Date: 1922
