I have mentioned on here quite a few time how the "Middle-eastern front" in World War one is often overlooked and many do not know that a major part of world war one was the decimation of the ottoman empire.
However, something that has not been discussed, nor have I looked at is the Ottoman empire itself.
How was it run? Was it a force for good or evil?
Why did everyone want to break away?
I think we can all agree that the Armenian genocide was absolutely appalling, but other than that, what else was there (especially in the late Ottoman empire)?
