Armies of the Ottoman Turks, 1300-1774 (Men-at-Arms, Volume by David Nicolle

By David Nicolle

The start of the Ottoman nation is shrouded in legend. regardless of the fact of its origins, the Ottomans shaped an Empire which just about succeeded in bringing Christian Europe to its knees. over the past a long time of the thirteenth century, the bold Osman Bey's tiny mountain kingdom took 8 frontier castles plus the Turkish city of Eskisehir. In 1299 Osman seized Yenisehir after operating up the Kara Su valley. With this as its first genuine capital, the Ottoman country emerged into background poised above the fertile shorelines of the ocean of Marmara.
