In spite of the numerous titles that Inonu managed to gather during his life, it is important to note that he grew up just like any other citizen of Turkey. Inonu was born in the year 1884 in a small town by the name Izmir. The town was situated around the Aegean region of Anatolia. In history, not much information is given about the parent. One thing that stands to be clear is the fact that the parents were ready to nurture a military man.

Inonu was ushered into politics when he joined the Terakki party in the year 1906. This is the same year that he got the title of a superior captain in the military force. While in the military, he managed to accomplish numerous tasks that were highly appreciated and even earned him more admiration from the people who knew him.
