    Pursuit of Goeben and Breslau

    As the beginning of World War I caught the German battlecruiser Goeben and light cruiser Breslau far from friendly ports, their commander Konteradmiral Wilhelm Souchon was supposed to attack French troop convoys in the Mediterranean. After carrying out a bombardment of North African ports, his ships were ordered to seek shelter in Turkey. While theoretically outgunned by the British fleet, admiral Souchon managed to avoid pursuit by a series of risky maneuvers and reached the safety of Dardanelles on August 10th, 1914. Based on the agreement between Germany and the Ottoman Empire, both ships were transfered to the Turkish Navy - along with their German crews and admiral Souchon was appointed Commander-in-Chief of the ottoman Navy on September 23rd, bringing the Ottoman Empire to war by his Black Sea raid against Russian targets on October 29th.

While the strike group lost all planes and one man and damage amounted only to two airships destroyed, this raid sparked plans for a torpedo plane raid on the German Hochseeflotte and was revived during WWII for the raid on Italian fleet at Taranto.
