The Ottoman Empire 1326-1699 (Essential Histories) (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 22 oct 2003
Descripción del producto
Essential Histories are remarkably effective in presenting military events in the wider contexts of the new military history.
Reseña del editor
The Ottoman Empire and its conflicts provide one of the longest continuous narratives in military history. Its rulers were never overthrown by a foreign power and no usurper succeeded in taking the throne. At its height under the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, the Empire became the most powerful state in the world - a multi-national, multilingual empire that stretched from Vienna to the upper Arab peninsula. With Suleiman's death began the gradual decline to the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699 in which the Ottoman Empire lost much of its European territory. This volume covers the main campaigns and the part played by such elite troops as the Janissaries and the Sipahis, as well as exploring the social and economic impact of the conquests.Ver Descripción del producto

The conflicts depicted in this account still resonate with the peoples of Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Austria, Kosovo, etc. The tensions and hatreds forged during the conflicts depicted here still motivate conflicts today.
The book contains some notable bits of information that the average reader will find fascinating. The activities of Vlad Dracul, the Impaler, are particularly interesting. The author does a splendid job of describing the real life activities of the man who became the literary inspiration for Count Dracula, the vampire.
The history of the Empire is told in chronological order. Thus, it is easy to follow. The author also expands on certain topics by devoting two chapters to a Serbian janissary and a civilian Grand Vizier. This adds a unique perspective and prevents the book from becoming nothing more than a list of battles. Bottom line: the author achieved his goal of writing a brief account of the Ottoman Empire, its battles, and the associated political motivations. This is no small feat given the expansive period covered. The book is a great reference on a part of history that is rarely taught in school.
