During the First World War, the Ottomans clearly made a fatal error by choosing an alliance with Germany. Could that error have been avoided if proper use had been made of the information available in 1914? First, we examine the military leadership, manpower, infrastructure, equipment, and naval capabilities of the Ottomans at the moment of decision.
