30th of August, Victory Day in Turkey, 2014

August the 30th is the Victory Day in Turkey. Today is the 92nd anniversary of the victory over the occupying forces of Greece in Anatolia.

The "Great Offensive" reached its primary goal in the Battle of Dumlupınar, 4 days after the initial counter-attack and the Greek army in Anatolia was defused on August the 30th, 1922.

Only after this achievement, the remaining Turkish cities and towns invaded by the "Allies" of the WW1 were saved one by one.
August the 30th marks a huge step of the Turkish national independence forces' decisive victory and is officially celebrated annually since 1935.
