Today marks the 86th anniversary of our great victory at Dumlupinar, Afyonkarahisar, which ended the Turkish War of Independence. The battle began on August 26, 1922 and ended with victory on August 30th, under Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's leadership. This decisive victory against the Greek Army ended the imperialist invasion of Anatolia by the British, French, Italian and Greek armies, which started in 1919. 

TurkishPAC commemorates those who died for our country with great respect.
