    My summary: Civil conflict began mid 19th century (establishment of the Armenian Tashnak Party, still active). Civil war grew in intensity with support from mainly Russia, but also France and Britain -- became a 'Armenian liberation movement'. The Russians were pursuing access to the "warm seas". While the Ottomans -- the Sick Man of Europe -- was fighting on four major fronts (Gallipoli, Sinai, Baghdad and Caucasus/Russia) the Armenian rebellion reached its peak. Ottoman cities were captured by the Armenians and cleansed of their majority non-Armenian peoples - in Van alone more than 30k Turks were massacred. Tens of thousands Armenians in the *Ottoman* army joined the Russians, who used these soldiers to deadly effect. The Ottomans thus issued an order to relocate Armenians from war zones (Eastern Anatolia). As in Iraq, civil war and a weak government meant failed protection/support for the Armenians and others. Numbers are uncertain: 700k Armenians died; +1Mil Turks also died.
