Operation AXIOM: After the World War—The Greco-Turkish War, Part III
22 June-September 1920: The Greek Summer Offensive—The British & Greeks launched a series of coordinated attacks & amphibious landings throughout the lands south of the Sea of Marmara & the Aegean Region, advancing over 125 miles out from Smyrna; the captive Ottoman government in Constantinople countered Atatürk's nationalists by invoking the sultan's authority as Islamic caliph.

Lest we forget.
