1918: Aboard the British battleship HMS Agamemnon, anchored in the port of Mudros on the Aegean island of Lemnos, representatives of Great Britain and the Ottoman Empire sign an armistice treaty marking the end of Ottoman participation in World War I. Although the Ottoman Empire had initially intended to stay neutral in the conflict, it ultimately aligned with Germany and entered the war in October 1914.
