Summary
Between 1911 and 1923, a series of wars--chief among them World War I--would engulf the Ottoman Empire and its successor states. It is a story we think we know well, but as Sean McMeekin shows us in this revelatory new history, we know far less than we think. Drawing from his years of ground-breaking research in newly opened Ottoman and Russian archives, The Ottoman Endgame brings to light the entire strategic narrative that led to an unstable new order in postwar Middle East--much of which is still felt today
Summary
Describes the series of wars that involved the Ottoman Empire during the turn of the 20th century and highlights the strategies and histories that lead to the emergency of Turkey, the partitioning of Iraq and Syria and an unstable new order that persists today
