Middle Eastern Fronts Battles
In November 1914, forces of the British Empire invaded Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq), a territory of the Ottoman Empire. British Empire forces would battle their way up the ancient waterways of the Tigris and Euphrates in Mesopotamia, across the open deserts of the Saini in northeast Egypt and the mountain ranges of the Holy Land.
Egypt and Palestine
In 1915, Ottoman forces invaded the British protectorate of Egypt, threatening the Suez Canal which was vital to the British Empire’s war effort.
