In ´´Latife Hanim,´´ a best-selling biography, the Turkish author Ipek Calislar describes a tense night in April 1923 when mutinous soldiers intent on killing the war hero Mustafa Kemal laid siege to the palace in Ankara where he lived with his new wife.The soldiers agreed, after some negotiation, to free the women and children they held hostage. What the soldiers did not know, Calislar writes, was that a plan had been hatched to save the future president of Turkey. He and his wife, Latife Ussaki, swapped clothes. She remained behind, dressed as a man to disorient the would-be assassins, while he fled, disguised in her black chador.
