What brought Turkey into World War I was the Escape of the German warships Goeben and Breslau , especially the Goeben, which was the most powerful ship in the Mediterranean at the start of the War. She was The Ship That Changed the World.

According to Winston Churchill the Goeben brought "more slaughter, more misery, and more ruin than has ever before been borne within the compass of a ship.". He wrote that in 1931.
