Looking to visit the Dardenelles and Bosporus next year. Can anyone provide information as to what of the coast artillery to see, maps, who to contact to make arrangements to visit sites. Anyone having visited who can offer suggestions.
Gary, interesting trip. Some tips:
Go to the Military museum and the Navy Museum in Istanbul. There's also a Navy Arms Museum in Golcuk Navy Base, near Istanbul, but you need to apply there for permission.
At Gallipoli and Canakkale there must be a lot to see, especially at the Canakkale Fortress Museum, see my postings on Turkish artillery.
