Light Reading – The Fall of the Ottomans

The Fall of the Ottomans

My local library offers audio books via Hoopla Digital. Today I’ve started listening to “The Fall of the Ottomans’s” by Eugene Rogan.

“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.”
