The Ottoman Empire's declaration of a holy war against the Allied Powers in 1914 was the first jihad in the Arab world since the crusades, and led to the end of the ancient regime and the emergence of a secular Turkish state. This book examines the turbulent period during which the empire crumbled and the charismatic leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk emerged to resist the regional ambitions of the British and the Greeks and curb the political influence of Islam.
