Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Father of the Turks - Turkey
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

The Founder of Modern Turkey


" M. Kemal Ataturk was an outstanding soldier and statesman of the first half of 20th century. "

Ataturk, The Rebirth of a Nation, Lord Kinross

" The name of Ataturk brings to mind the historical accomplishments of one of the great men of this century; his inspired leadership of Turkish people his perceptive understanding of the modern world and his boldness as a military leader.

It is to the credit of Ataturk and Turkish People that a free Turkey grew out of a collapsing empire and that new Turkey has proudly proclaimed and maintained its independence ever since. Certainly there is no more successful example of self-reliance than the Turkish Republic and the
profound changes initiated since then by Turkey and Ataturk. "

John F. Kennedy, 1963
