In 1920, four Turkish divisions under the command of General Karabekir invaded the Armenian Republic, triggering the Turkish-Armenian War. Kars had been fortified to withstand a lengthy siege but was taken with little resistance by Turkish forces on 30 October 1920, in what has been called one of the worst military fiascoes in Armenian history. Armenia was forced to give back all the Ottoman territories granted to it in the Treaty of Sevres. After the Bolshevik advance into Armenia, the Treaty of Alexandropol was superseded by the Treaty of Kars (October 23, 1921), signed between Turkey and the Soviet Union) (Image)
