For Civilisation

Acc Arts Books

In 1914, war broke out in Europe, but also in the Middle East, the region largely dominated by the Ottoman Empire. The regime of the Young Turks sided with Germany and thus belonged to the side of the defeated in 1918. The Ottoman Empire disintegrated, and its borders were redrawn to suit the interests of Western powers. A Turkish national movement led by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk continued to fight for an indepentent Turkey until 1923. Elsewhere, new states such as Syria, Iraq, and Transjordan were founded and placed under French or British mandate.

Dissatisfaction with this state of affairs propelled several local communities into conflicts that continued to smoulder and flare up for decades, right up to the present day.

In 'For Civilisation': The First World War in the Middle East, 1914-1923, Pieter Trogh unravels this complex history together with a team of ten specialists selected by him for their breadth of vision and special expertise.
