339 miles away, in Istanbul, nearly a thousand sick soldiers lie dying in their hospital beds. Cholera, Typhoid, Dysentery and Tetanus afflict them. They live in constant agony, vomiting, guttering, pain filling every inch of their body. Feces is splattered across the unwashed floors, already flooded with sewagery and the corpses of their fallen brethren.
Even among these piles of dead men, some soldiers are still alive, forgotten by a hospital too packed to provide them hospital beds.
