Overview

Osman's Dream: The History of the Ottoman Empire by Caroline Finkel

The definitive history of the Ottoman Empire


The Ottoman Empire was one of the largest and most influential empires in world history. Its reach extended to three continents and it survived for more than six centuries, but its history is too often colored by the memory of its bloody final throes on the battlefields of World War I. In this magisterial work-the first definitive account written for the general reader-renowned scholar and journalist Caroline Finkel lucidly recounts the epic story of the Ottoman Empire from its origins in the thirteenth century through its destruction in the twentieth.

Great overview of Ottoman Empire and thankfully NOT your typical stereotypical slanted Western account of the Ottomans.
