THE HISTORY CHANNEL: OTTOMAN EMPIRE

14 Sep

Ottoman Empire: The War Machine is a documentary on the six century reign of the Ottoman Empire

“The Ottoman state rose to become a world empire, which lasted from the late 13th century to 1923. Like that of the Habsburgs, its eventual rival, the Ottoman Empire was dynastic; its territories and character owed little to national, ethnic or religious boundaries, and were determined by the military and administrative power of the dynasty at any particular time. The Ottomans attempted to bring as much territory as possible into the Islamic fold. The non-Muslims living in these areas were then absorbed into the Empire as protected subjects.”http://www.theottomans.org/english/index.asp
