From the Editor

The primary and most important way for Turkish youth to discover their power, talents and achievements in history as a nation, in short, the noble blood in their veins, is to learn their history. As stated in Afet İnan's work titled Atatürk Hakkında Hatıralar ve Belgeler (Memories and Documents About Ataturk);“Our ancestors, who founded great states, had great and comprehensive civilizations. It is our duty to search for this, to examine it, and to inform it to Turkishness and the world. As the Turkish nation gets to know its history and ancestors, it will find the strength to do greater things."

The following statements are included in the work titled AnafartalarMuhaberatına Ait Tarihçe (History of Anafartalar Correspondence) by our Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who advocated at every opportunity that the history of the nation and the world should be studied comprehensively scientifically: “What a beautiful mirror history is. People, especially the morally developed tribes, take their souls away from men by being subject to selfish feelings even in the face of the greatest sacred concepts. In the great events that go down in history, it shows the attitudes, actions and behaviors of those who are responsible and active in these events, clearly showing their moral realization."

This book, titled Tarih Alanında Seçme Yazılar -VI-  (Selected Writings in the Field of History -VI-), has been prepared with the idea of expanding the range of historical research, depending on the increasing scientific literature in today's technology.
