The Janissaries

by Godfrey Goodwin, The Janissaries Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Janissaries book, From the fifteenth to the sixteenth century, the janissaries were the scourge of Europe. With their martial music, their muskets and their drilled march, it seemed that no one could withstand them. Their loyalty to their corps was infinite as the Ottomans conquered the Balkans as far as the Danube, and Syria, Egypt and Iraq. They set up semi-independent states along the North African coast and even fought at sea. Their political power was such that even sultans trembled. Who were they? Why were they an elite? Why did they decline and what was their end? These are some of the questions which this book attempts to answer. It is the story of extraordinary personalities in both victory and defeat. 'An incredible book ... a tour de force' Middle East International 'Well written and lucid.' Muslim World Books Review 'Goodwin has done so much in his scholarly career to introduce a wide audience to Ottoman culture.' Financial Times

The Janissaries

by David Nicolle, The Janissaries Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Janissaries book, The Janissaries comprised an élite corps in the service of the Ottoman Empire. It was composed of war captives and Christian youths pressed into service; all of whom were converted to Islam and trained under the strictest discipline. In many ways, Jannisaries reflected Ottoman society, which was itself dominated by a military elite and where there was much greater social mobility than in Europe. On top of this, the Turks looked upon Europe much as the early Americans viewed the Western Frontier – as a land of adventure, mission and opportunity. David Nicolle examines the history, organisation, weapons and uniforms of these élite Turkish troops.

The Janissary

by Firsid Barsa, The Janissary Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Janissary book, The King shall lose both head and crown… Doomed by ancient prophecy, the ineffectual ruler of the Remish Empire faces countless enemies: rebellious nobles, an insurgent middle class, nationalistic rebels from breakaway provinces, a restive serf population. The King summons the one man in all his empire who can save his dynasty: the janissary General, Dmitry Konchak. But can the King truly trust this strange man a military genius who is squeamish and faints at the sight of blood, a religious mystic, an effeminate drunkard? The King orders the janissary to arrest the conspirators of the White Lodge, wealthy young aristocrats seeking to overthrow the monarchy. The newest recruit to their cause is Reiss Tselatse, whose tormented past has made him a fervent idealist, renouncing everything for the sake of the Revolution. Tselatses chance encounter and bizarre friendship with the janissary will have far-reaching implications for the fate of the empire. A letter of type missing from a printing press…. Mystical visions born from the bite of an insect…. The fateful consequences of a young widows ordeal…. Threads which weave throughout this epic story of revolution, war, friendship, love, and betrayal.

The Janissary Tree

by Jason Goodwin, The Janissary Tree Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Janissary Tree book, Yashim is no ordinary detective. It's not that he's particularly brave. Or that he cooks so well, or reads French novels. Not even that his best friend is the Ambassador from Poland, whose country has vanished from the map. Yashim is a eunuch. As the Sultan plans a series of radical reforms to his empire, a concubine is strangled in the palace harem. And a young cadet is found butchered in the streets of Istanbul. Delving deep into the city's crooked alleyways, and deeper still into its tumultuous past, Yashim discovers that some people will go to any lengths to preserve the traditions of the Ottoman Empire. Brilliantly evoking Istanbul in the 1830s, The Ottoman Detective is a fast-paced literary thriller with a spectacular cast, from mystic orders and lissom archivists to soup-makers and a seductive ambassador's wife. Darker than any of these is the mysterious figure who controls the Sultan's harem.
