NotesNews: 25 November: " ... Papen, [German ambassador to Turkey] returned from Germany to blacked-out Istanbul and left again for Angora only a few hours before Istanbul came under martial law. .... That was Turkey's reaction to the Italian attack on Greece. Greece, perhaps, invited an Italian ultimatum by her policy of non-provocative neutrality. Turkey does not intend to make the same mistake. Her determination to resist is being firmly demonstrated in advance. Further, the better Turkey is prepared for war the less likelihood that Bulgaria will attempt to stab Greece in the back. ..."
