The Ottoman Endgame War Revolution and the Making of the Modern Middle East 1908 1923 is a book on the final years of the Ottoman Empire and its dissolution after WWI The Ottoman Empire was a fascinating conglomerate of cultures religions and regions that lasted for hundreds of years It controlled territory that today is often considered restive areas such as the Balkans the Middle East and North Africa It controlled these areas for centuries where many others failed to for even a few years and it did so using religious power the Caliph in Istanbul military might and decentralized administration In its final few decades however the Ottoman s were often considered the punching bag for an increasingly Imperialist Europe Britain France and Russia all staked claims to the Empire shaving off territorial concessions and new nations for decades before WWI The Ottomans lost control of Tunisia and Algeria to France Libya and Rhodes to Italy Egypt and Sudan to Britain and the Caucus and Black Sea ports of Crimea to Russia Bulgaria Romania Serbia Bosnia Greece Macedonia and Montenegro all spawned from previous Ottoman provinces and proceeded to suabble over the spoils of a weakened stateThis book helps to refute the notion that the Ottoman s were the Sick Man of Europe by showing how they were attacked from all fronts for Imperialist purposes Any nation would have had difficulty defending from a combination of Great Powers in this time period and the Ottoman s were no exception Leading up to WWI the Central Powers Austria Hungary and Germany sought to beef up relations with the Sublime Porte in order to dilute the border with Russia and spread her armies thin As a result the Germans began to ship masses of men and material to the beaten and bruised Ottoman army which had been fighting wars in the Balkans for almost a decade leading up to WWI During the war the Ottoman s garnered victory and defeat on the battlefield failing to capture the Suez Canal and losing territory to Russia in the Caucus regions However the successful defense of Gallipoli and the closure of the Dardanelles to Russian fleets put the sueeze on the Entente powers and showed that the Sick Man of Europe could scrap with the best of themFollowing the war the Ottomans continued to fight resisting occupations by Greece France and Britain and beating the Soviets and Italians to strategic resources The Ottoman Empire lost millions of citizens during the war to flight to conflict and most disturbingly to inter ethnic cleansing massacre and religious strife The Armenian massacres are well known in modern circles but Kurds Pontic Greeks and Muslims themselves were massacred by both Ottoman forces paramilitary groups and foreign armies With the modern political rhetoric that circles any talk of Turkish genocide I will leave it at thatSuffice to say this was an excellent read that chronicles the transformation of the Ottoman Empire into nationalistic states like Turkey Armenia and Azerbaijan as well as the carving up of the Arab world and the beginning of the inter ethnic conflict the Balkans and Middle East are synonymous with in the modern world The Ottoman war effort is chronicled in detail down to their troop operations on their multiple fronts and the naval excursions into the Black Sea This is a really interesting look at WWI from the Ottoman viewpoint and helps to solidify the Ottomans as one of the powers of the war and not just the Sick Man of Europe sneer that is so often pointed in their direction even to this day A solid read and worth your time if your are a history or war buff
