Dr Eugene Rogan's new book, "The Fall of the Ottomans", has been published

27 February 2015

Dr Eugene Rogan, GB Fellow at St Antony's and Director of the Middle East Centre, has just published a new book: "The Fall of the Ottomans: The Great War in the Middle East, 1914-1920" (Allen Lane, 2015). The volume recreates one of the most important but poorly understood fronts of the First World War. Despite fighting back with great skill and ferocity against the Allied onslaught and humiliating the British both at Gallipoli and in Mesopotamia (Iraq), the Ottomans were ultimately defeated, clearing the way for the making, for better or worse, of a new Middle East which has endured to the present.
