Salih Bozok (1881; Salonica (Thessaloniki) - April 25, 1941; Istanbul) was an officer of the Ottoman Army and later the Turkish Army, a politician of the Republic of Turkey. He was the chief aide-de-camp of the chairman of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Mustafa Kemal (Atatürk). On November 10, 1938, upon witnessing the dead body of Atatürk in the latter's bedroom of Dolmabahçe Palace, a distraught and stunned Bozok stepped outside and shot himself through the chest with a pistol. Unfortunately for him, the bullet narrowly missed his heart and did not succumb to his fatal wound until April 1941.
