    Philip Jowett is Osprey's usual author when it comes to 20th-century wars and armies in what might have been considered secondary theaters of action, though with developments in the lands of the former Ottoman Empire and China one might argue that the tables have been turned. Be that as it may, this booklet is up to Jowett's previous standards in providing an overview of the action and the nuts and bolts of the forces involved; no one does better with making a chronological outline serve the pur Philip Jowett is Osprey's usual author when it comes to 20th-century wars and armies in what might have been considered secondary theaters of action, though with developments in the lands of the former Ottoman Empire and China one might argue that the tables have been turned. Be that as it may, this booklet is up to Jowett's previous standards in providing an overview of the action and the nuts and bolts of the forces involved; no one does better with making a chronological outline serve the purposes of narrative than Osprey. About the only thing to be missed is some bibliographic apparatus, and Osprey has a strong enough website that they should really start providing such information there; it is to be admitted that 48 pages is a brutal length to work with.

    A good overview of a general little understood war that helped shaped modern Turkey. Concise and full of detailed military logistics. Of course excellent detailed drawings of uniforms. This is a good companion to have alongside something like De Waal's "Great Catastrophe". A good overview of a general little understood war that helped shaped modern Turkey.

    A solid and technocratic work that ably steps-around the vast amount of what we'd now call human rights violations, mass murders and ethnic cleansing that happened within this war to concentrate on equipment and uniform sources without getting itself tied up in trying to give a balanced account of this still contentious conflict.
