The Ottoman Endgame

War, Revolution and the Making of the Modern Middle East, 1908-1923




An exciting, iconoclastic history of the final years of the Ottoman Empire, published for the centenaries of many significant WW1 events

The Ottoman Endgame is the first, and definitive, single-volume history of the Ottoman Empire's decade-long war for survival. Beginning with Italy's invasion of Ottoman Tripoli in September 1911, the book concludes with the establishment of Turkish independence in the Treaty of Lausanne, 1923. This is the first time an author has woven the entire epic together from start to finish - and it will cause many readers to fundamentally reevaluate their understanding of the conflict.

Praise for The Ottoman Endgame

There are many histories of World War One; few are as important or as readable as this one

Walter Russell Mead

Masterful and sympathetic . . . superb

Charles King, Literary Review

A marvellous exposition of the historian's art

Christopher de Bellaigue, Guardian

This readable, much-praised and opinionated work chronicles the Ottomans' entry into the war on Germany's side, its eventual defeat and its final dismemberment

Gerard Russell, The Times

It is an enormous story, and McMeekin is a worthy chronicler of it . . . The Ottoman Endgame is the most satisfactory and thought-through of the recent books on the subject that I have seen

Norman Stone, Prospect

Original and passionately written

Economist
