Considering that most studies of Ataturk's career seem to, proportionally at least, blow past his military career post-Gallipolli and pre 1922, this is a welcome addition to the source material. In addition, it is well researched and thoroughly cited and this work is then sewn together with an excellent analysis of how the self-taught scholarship in philosophy and political theory of the man was related to both his political and military leadership style.

A concise and well-researched account on the early years of Atatürk. As a military historian, the author gives very interesting insights on Atatürk's military campaigns. He successfully explains Atatürk's political and military strategies during the War of Independence. Worth read.
