Turkish History 1918-1931 As Interpreted by Two American Diplomats

Jay Pierrepoint Moffat & Jefferson Patterson

Libra Yayinlari - 2015

There are many textbooks and scholarly works of Ottoman and Turkish history written both by foreign and Turkish scholars. What distinguish the present work from these books is that it has been prepared by two American diplomats stationed in Turkey at the time “history was in the making”. Thus it gives a first hand interpretation of the last days of the Ottoman Empire, of the Turkish War of Independence, of the establishment of the Republic and of its first eight years.
