There have been five different settings that have contained the dead body of Ataturk, organizer of the Turkish War of Independence (1919-1923) and first president of the Republic of Turkey. Narrating the story of these different architectural constructions, this book also describes and interprets the movement of Ataturk’s body through the cities of Istanbul and Ankara and also the nation of Turkey to reach these destinations.
