Abstract

This book focuses on the aftermath that World War I brought to the Ottoman Empire which was not developed enough to enter a modern war on a global scale. The Ottoman Empire overworked their soldiers, encountered food shortages, and expanded the influence of government extensively both during and after the Great War. While World War I was certainly a factor in the destruction of this vast empire, the government's policies contributed to its collapse post-war.
