With Turkey, Iran and Argentina entering the war on Germany’s side, things began to heat up in the Black Sea region. A pre-emptive strike was required on the Red Navy dockyards at Sochi and the Luftwaffe sent several dive bombers and fighter from Turkey to do the mission. Chechen volunteers also attacked the Soviet troops stationed to the north of Grozny, but soon lost heart and gave in. There were heavy losses on all sides ai Sochi due to heavy Soviet ant-aircraft fire and skilful German dive-bombing, but the dockyards were destroyed. This gave Turkey a breathing space and helped divert Soviet forces from the on-going occupation of Iran.
Causes of the conflict
A pre-emptive strike was required on the Red Navy dockyards at Sochi.
Turkey and Iran were persuaded to join in due to both the fear of communism and the promise of liberating Ingushetia, Dagestan and Chechnya from Soviet rule. Sultan Abdul Majid issued a fatwa of Jihad in the Caucaus from the Muslim scholars, making it obligatory for all Muslims to participate in liberating the region from Soviet-athestic rule.
A German and Turkish victory, the Turks created a Caucaus Emirate under "Emir Ibn Ahmad". It was to be ruled like a Turkish province, and was the new frontier for both Turkey and Iran against the Soviet Union.
Turkey and Iran were emboldened and stayed on the German’s side. Iran and Turkey were now both ready to begin a drive to British India with German forces. It also began the phase for Chechen volunteers to enter the war, fighting strictly on the side of the Turkish Muslim Empire.
