Success or Failure?
Germany dedicated a large amount of planning and resources to propaganda for Muslim prisoners of war.
The campaign by most measures was a failure.
- Some POWs did join the alliance: about 800 prisoners from the Half Moon Camp registered for the Ottoman army and went to Turkey.
- Most Muslim POWs, about 4,200 or 84%, did not join the German-Ottoman alliance.
- A Muslim revolution to overthrow English, French, and Russian empires never materialized.
