Dardanelles

Détroit stratégique entre la mer noir et la méditerranée, frontière naturelle entre l’Europe et l’Asie, lieu de multiple batailles des croisades à la première guerre mondiale, passage commercial disputé entre Gêne et Venise, des épices d’Inde au pétrole de Russie, tout transite par ici! Mustapha Kemal Atatürk, le père de la turquie moderne, s’illustra ici en 1914 en stoppant puis repoussant les forces alliées.
