Format: Paperback
This work was not intended to bring to the forefront a great debate over the Armenian Question, Dr. Bouchard! The purpose of this work is to cover an extensive period of Ottoman history in a small amount of pages, and I think it is presented well. Merely rejecting the words of Dr. Shaw based upon such a narrow, controversial topic as the Armenian Question is not being true to the people who want solid reviews.

True the work is very detailed in its factual presentation, but it educates the reader on the many facets of Ottoman civilization. Too many authors of Ottoman history fail to get to the true meat of the matter, and Dr. Shaw does not dissapoint. I would recommend this to any student of Ottoman history as an overall guide to the events during the period it covers.

I always admired Prof Shaw's careful research regading the Turkish history. It is also interesting to note that in the section titled 'On Armenian Collaboration With Invading Russian Armies in 1914,' he does expose the well-known Armenian crime of genocide against the defenseless Muslims in 1914.
"In April 1915 Dashnaks from Russian Armenia organized a revolt in the city of Van, whose 33,789 Armenians comprised 42.3 percent of the population. Leaving Erivan on April 28, 1915, Armenian Army reached Van on May 14 and organized and carried out a general slaughter of the local Muslim population during the next two days."

Prof Shaw's excellent documentation of the Turkish history is, in fact, in line with the Russian view of the Turkish Holocaust. I also agree with the respectable scholars and Prof Shaw that the Armenian denial makes it worse. Besides, we are talking about the Turkish people that were directly impacted by the Armenian genocide of the Muslim people in Russian Armenia and Eastern Anatolia. Turks never stop writing about the genocide they have experienced in 1914. Referring to notes from the personal diary of Russian General L. Odishe Liyetze on the Turkish front, he wrote, "On the nights 11-12 March alone Armenian butchers bayoneted and axed to death Muslim people in areas surrounding Erzincan. These barbars threw their victims into pits, most likely dug according to their sinister plans to extinguish Muslims, in groups of 80. My adjutant counted and unearthed 200 such pits. This is an act against our world of civilization." On March 12, Lieut-colonel Griyaznof wrote (from an official Russian account of the Turkish Holocaust), "Roads leading to villages were littered with bayoneted torsos, dismembered joints and carved out organs of Muslim peasants...alas! mainly of women and children." "The killings were organized by the doctors and the employers, and the act of killing was committed solely by the Armenian Army. Large holes were dug and the defenceless Muslim people were slaughtered like animals next to the holes. Later, the murdered Muslims were thrown into the holes. The Armenian who stood near the hole would say when the hole was filled with the corpses: 'Seventy dead bodies, well, this hole can take ten more.' Thus ten more Muslims would be cut into pieces, thrown into the hole, and when the hole was full it would be covered over with soil.Read more ›

Very objective and well documented.
These great historians had access to many Turkish sources and their work shows it. It brings out aspects of Ottoman history that Western sources neglected.

First of all shipping was very fast. I found the book very interesting with rich content. The only disappoint was the word "Modern Turkey" which is not included in this volume. I hope you send me the second volum containing the Modern Turkey- with discount.
Thanks,
