Sıtkı Üke (1876; Salonica (Thessaloniki) - 1941; Istanbul) was an officer of the Ottoman Army and the general of the Turkish Army. Sıtkı grew up in the same town as Atatürk, the founder of modern day Turkey, who referred to Sıtkı as "big brother" and conferred on him the surname Üke, or "honor", during the establishment of the modern Turkish state.
