Hejaz: The Survey of Egypt book of 1918



Following the entry on 29th October, 1914 of the Turkish Ottoman Empire into the 1914-18 First World War on the side of the Central Powers, including Germany, it followed that war was declared between Great Britain and the Ottoman Empire on the 5th November, 1914. As the territory of Britain’s new enemy extended virtually up to the Suez Canal, (Egypt was technically still part of the Ottoman Empire) the British declared Egypt to be a Protectorate on 18th December, 1914, so that this vital link to India and beyond could be maintained.
