The Defense of Van (1915) was an act of self-defense by the Armenians against the genocide committed by Ottoman Turkey with the passive complicity and occasional collaboration of its ally, the German Empire.

The Ottoman army and its military elite were modernized and trained by Germany under Colmar von der Goltz guidance, from 1883 to 1895.
