Overview

The Ottoman Road to War in 1914: The Ottoman Empire and the First World War

The aim of this new series is to publish outstanding works of research on warfare throughout the ages and throughout the world. Books in the series will take a broad approach to military history, examining war in all its military, strategic, political, and economic aspects. The series is intended to complement Studies in the Social and Cultural History of Modern Warfare by focusing on the "hard" military history of armies, tactics, strategy, and warfare. Books in the series will consist mainly of single-author works - academically vigorous and groundbreaking - which will be accessible to both academics and the interested general reader.
