This is an auction for THE FALL OF THE OTTOMANS: THE GREAT WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST 1914-1920 by Eugene Rogan.

"I've read a large number of preWWI and WWI history books in my time but this is the first time the war has been diligently covered from the perspective of the Ottoman empire. It's a fascinating account of the dilemma the Turks faced on the eve of World War One, and the treatment of all sides - including the hapless civilians who were caught up in the hysteria and madness of the time - is even-handed and highly informative. For anyone wanting to understand Turkey's history and how it has shaped today's country under Erdogan this is a must-read. Likewise for those who want to understand the Armenian genocide."

"This is a remarkable account of the Fall of the Ottoman empire that treats the Armenian genocide fairly and accurately. It goes beyond "us against them" analysis by explaining the full historical context, and the complex dynamics both between and within nations that characterize the region to this day. It is fascinating reading for anybody interested in the consequences of collapsing empires, and contemporary regional issues. I strongly recommend reading "Persona Non Grata: End of the Great Game" by Avery Mann in conjunction with this book. It addresses the same themes from a less academic perspective."
