    Born 1879 in Instanbul
    Died 27 August 1922 in Çiğiltepe

    Reşat began his career after three years of study and his graduation from the military academy in 1896. His first assignment was as an officer in the 65th Regiment, 3rd Army. He was sent to Albania to help suppress the rebellion during the fighting of the Albanian Revolt of 1910. He returned to Albania after fighting in the Italo-Turkish War to again quell rebels during the Albanian Revolt of 1912. He was promoted to Major for his defense and wounding at Ioahinna at the Battle of Bizani during the First Balkan War. At the outbreak of the Great War, he was a battalion commander in the 70th Regiment. They were sent to Gallipoli in June 1915. He was wounded once at Seddülbahir, made a short recovery stay in Istanbul, and returned to fight at Gallipoli until January 1916. Next he was sent to the Syrian Front but shortly after he took command over the 17th Regiment fighting the Russians in the Caucasus region. He was head of the military police in Üsküdar during the early months of 1918. July 1918 he returned to active duty to command the 53rd Regiment fighting in Mesopotamia. On the night of 22 September 1918, Reşat was leading a reconnaissance mission for the planned capture of the ridges around Masashana when they were captured by British cavalry. He spent one full year as a prisoner of war in the Sidi Bishr camp near Alexandria. He returned to Turkey to fight across multiple fronts during the Turkish War of Independence. Promoted to Colonel and appointed commander of the 57th Division in March 1922. He was ordered on 27 August 1922 to take the critically important crossroads town of Çiğiltepe by which he asserted it could be done in 30 minutes. Stiff Greek resistance prevented the Turks from taking the town in 30 minutes and thus by failing, Reşat ended his life by suicide. The town was taken not long after.

    That is an interesting photo. To me it looks like some of the soldiers are wearing Russian uniforms, so I wonder if the clandestine unit is the Brandenburg Regiment.
