A statue honours, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the battle commander in Turkey's only victory of the First World War - the battle for Gallipoli. He was reportedly shot while standing in the place marked by this statue. A pocket watch stopped the bullet from penetrating his heart. He later went on to become the founder of the Turkish republic and the first Turkish president.
