really liked it
bookshelves: audio, history-politics

I get bored reading meticulous accounts about order of battle, supply line accounting, and weather conditions. But I do understand the important of knowing these things. The Fall of the Ottomans might not be the easiest read, but it is certainly an important work. Rogan has done a service to WWI scholarship, and it was interesting to see the war from the Ottomans point of view. So many gaps to fill in between my spare knowledge of Gallipoli and my dozen viewings of David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia. ;-)
