OK Doug, You got me interested in this piece of battle history. (Ataturk) Got some reading to do.
they say Helen had a face to launch a thousand ships.

I didnt see her, but I saw a girl there whose face would make a freight train take a dirt road.

As far as all the politics from that era/area go, I just share what I learn. Im no scholar, but I like to learn a bit from the places I visit. Sometimes the info is one sided, of course its always best to get both sides, & draw your own conclusion.
I actually got a nasty email last year, from a turkish guy who didnt like what I wrote in a magazine article about the armenian/turkish problems. He said something like 'we are trying to forget about this'
