Summary
"This book examines the social transformation of the Ottoman military system in an era of global imperialism. Using close analysis of select campaigns, Aksan discusses the Ottoman Empire's changing internal military context, before addressing the modernized regimental organisation under Sultan Mahmud II after 1826. Featuring illustrations and maps, many of which have never been published before, this book draws on previously untapped source material to provide an original account of an empire nearing financial and societal collapse, and the successes and failures of a military system under siege. The book is a study of the decline of an international power, raising questions about the influence of culture on warfare."--BOOK JACKET
