The Young Turk party was led by three brothers, Talaat Pasha, Jemal Pasha, and Enver Pasha. They want ed to create a Pan-Turkic Empire. The marched the Armenians through dessserts on Death Marches, raped young women, shot them, burned them alive, starved them, and even bayonetted pregnant mothers. Turky denies it's occurence to this day.
