9780465023073: The Fall of the Ottomans: The Great War in the Middle East
Review:

"Publishers Weekly""[A] sweeping and nuanced work.... Rogan's multifaceted analysis touches on everything from the use of Islamist discourse in political movements to the treatment of minorities in the modern Middle East." "Kirkus""[A] well-researched, evenhanded treatment of the Ottomans' role in World War I.... An illuminating work that offers new understanding to the troubled history of this key geopolitical region." Avi Shlaim, author of "The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World""This is a gripping, masterful account of World War One in the Middle East from the vantage point of the Ottoman Empire. It uses the full panoply of primary sources in Turkish, Arabic, and European languages to brilliantly illuminating effect. Combining magisterial scholarship with a keen sense of drama and lively narrative style, it tells a grim story but a fascinating one. There is a great deal of new material here which not only brings events alive but also leads to fresh assessments of all the participants in the Great War but especially Arabs and Turks. If you want to understand the underlying causes of conflict and violence in the Middle East in the last century, you will not find a better book." Rashid Khalidi, author of "Resurrecting Empire: Western Footprints and America's Perilous Path in the Middle East""This book opens up a window on vital chapters in the shaping of the Middle East as well as the history of the Great War, bringing together vivid personal details with a broad historical panorama of human suffering and heroism, the incompetence and folly of the general staffs, and the scheming of the great powers." Margaret MacMillan, author of "The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914""Thoroughly researched and elegantly written by one of the leading experts on the region, "The Fall of the Ottomans" reminds us that the 1914-18 conflict was truly a world war with huge and continuing consequences. No one is better equipped than Eugene Rogan to handle the course and impact of the war in the Middle East and he does a superb job, telling a complex and multifaceted story with great clarity, understanding, and compassion. This timely and important work restores the Middle East to its rightful place in the history of the Great War." Mustafa Aksakal, Chair of Modern Turkish Studies and Associate Professor of History at Georgetown University"Eugene Rogan has given us an absorbing history of the war's principal military and political battles in the Middle East through the eyes of those who fought them. Weaving together accounts of the horrors of life in the trenches with those on the home front, he exposes the deadly dynamic emerging between the two, from the disastrous Ottoman attempt to invade Russia to the calamity of the Armenian deportations, from the British invasion to the Arab revolt and the Ottoman Empire's final defeat and partition." Alexander Watson, author of "Ring of Steel: Germany and Austria-Hungary in World War I""A fantastic, readable, and much needed study of the most chronically neglected of all of the Great War's participants: the Ottoman Empire. Informative and enlightening." Ali Allawi, author of "The Occupation of Iraq: Winning the War, Losing the Peace""Eugene Rogan has written a meticulously researched, panoramic, and engrossing history of the final years of the Ottoman Empire. This book is essential reading for understanding the evolution of the modern Middle East and the root causes of nearly all the conflicts that now plague the area. An altogether splendid work of historical writing." Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of "Jerusalem: The Biography""Thrilling, superb, and colorful, Eugene Rogan's "Fall of the Ottomans" is brilliant storytelling. Filled with flamboyant characters, impeccable scholarship that illuminates the neglected Near Eastern theater of WWI--showing how the Ottomans managed to perform unexpectedly well against the Allies--and revelatory analysis that explains the modern Mideast, "The Fall of the Ottomans" is truly essential but also truly exciting reading." Roger Owen, Professor Emeritus of Middle East History, Harvard University"A vivid account of the fighting that led to the fall of one of the world's great empires."

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1914 the Ottoman Empire was depleted of men and resources after years of war against Balkan nationalist and Italian forces. But in the aftermath of the assassination in Sarajevo, the powers of Europe were sliding inexorably toward war, and not even the Middle East could escape the vast and enduring consequences of one of the most destructive conflicts in human history. The Great War spelled the end of the Ottomans, unleashing powerful forces that would forever change the face of the Middle East. In The Fall of the Ottomans, award-winning historian Eugene Rogan brings the First World War and its immediate aftermath in the Middle East to vivid life, uncovering the often ignored story of the region s crucial role in the conflict. Bolstered by German money, arms, and military advisors, the Ottomans took on the Russian, British, and French forces, and tried to provoke Jihad against the Allies in their Muslim colonies. Unlike the static killing fields of the Western Front, the war in the Middle East was fast-moving and unpredictable, with the Turks inflicting decisive defeats on the Entente in Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, and Gaza before the tide of battle turned in the Allies favor. The great cities of Baghdad, Jerusalem, and, finally, Damascus fell to invading armies before the Ottomans agreed to an armistice in 1918. The postwar settlement led to the partition of Ottoman lands between the victorious powers, and laid the groundwork for the ongoing conflicts that continue to plague the modern Arab world. A sweeping narrative of battles and political intrigue from Gallipoli to Arabia, The Fall of the Ottomans is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the Great War and the making of the modern Middle East.
