Map of the Russian campaign in Asia Minor from 'The Nations at War, a Current History' by Willis John Abbot, 1917 Edition.
Text:
The Russian campaign in Asia Minor. After the capture of Erzerum the Russian forces pushed on in three columns, one toward Trebizond, the second toward Erzingan and Sivas, where the main Turkish army had its base, and the third column southward to Mush and Bitlis. The capture of Erzerum and the advance into Asia Minor enabled the Russians to capture Kermanshah, in Persia, and to turn westward toward Bagdad, with the aim of coöperating with the British in Mesopotamia
