SHIP THAT CHANGED THE WORLD: The Escape of the Goeben to the Dardanelles in 1914by Dan Van Der Vat
The exploits of the German battle cruiser Goeben at the outbreak of World War I changed the early course of the war and had a decisive impact on subsequent world history. Virtually alone in the Mediterranean, the Goeben eluded the French and British fleets and joined with Turkish forces, influencing Turkey to enter the war on Germany's side. Ludendorff estimated that this prolonged World War I by two years.
