The Siege and the Fall of Constantinople in 1453 by Book Summary:

This major study is a comprehensive scholarly work on a key moment in the history of Europe, the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. The result of years of research, it presents all available sources along with critical evaluations of these narratives. The authors have consulted texts in all relevant languages, both those that remain only in manuscript and others that have been printed, often in careless and inferior editions. Attention is also given to 'folk history' as it evolved over centuries, producing prominent myths and folktales in Greek, medieval Russian, Italian, and Turkish folklore. Part I, The Pen, addresses the complex questions introduced by this myriad of original literature and secondary sources.

Constantine XI Dragaš Palaeologus (1404–1453) by Marios Philippides Book Summary:

Constantine XI’s last moments in life, as he stood before the walls of Constantinople in 1453, have bestowed a heroic status on him. This book produces a more balanced portrait of an intriguing individual: the last emperor of Constantinople. To be sure, the last of the Greek Caesars was a fascinating figure, not so much because he was a great statesman, as he was not, and not because of his military prowess, as he was neither a notable tactician nor a soldier of exceptional merit. This monarch may have formulated grandiose plans but his hopes and ambitions were ultimately doomed, because he failed to inspire his own subjects, who did not rally to his cause. Constantine lacked the skills to create, restore, or maintain harmony in his troubled realm. In addition, he was ineffective on the diplomatic front, as he proved unable to stimulate Latin Christendom to mount an expedition and come to the aid of south-eastern Orthodox Europe. Yet in sharp contrast to his numerous shortcomings, his military defeats, and the various disappointments during his reign, posterity still fondly remembers the last Constantine.

Constantinople by Roger Crowley Book Summary:

'Engagingly fresh and vivid . . . The 21-year-old Mehmet [the Ottoman Sultan] emerges from this book as ruthless but innovative, irascible but versatile and, above all, indefatigable - a worthy successor to Alexander and the Roman emperors he admired as much as any Muslim hero.' Malise Ruthven, Sunday Times In the spring of 1453, the Ottoman Turks advanced on Constantinople in pursuit of an ancient Islamic dream: capturing the thousand-year-old capital of Christian Byzantium. During the siege that followed, a small band of defenders, outnumbered ten to one, confronted the might of the Ottoman army in an epic contest fought on land, sea and underground. 'In this account of the 1453 siege, written in crackling prose by former Istanbul resident Roger Crowley - his first book and not, I hope, his last - we are treated to narrative history at its most enthralling.' Christopher Silvester, Daily Express 'A vivid and readable account of the siege . . . [And] an excellent traveller's guide to how and why Istanbul became a Muslim city.' Philip Mansel Guardian

The Early Eastern Orthodox Church by Stephen Morris Book Summary:

 “It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us,” the apostles declared at the conclusion of their council described in Acts 15. This apostolic council was the first of many councils to come as Christians sought to discern the will of God in the midst of historic challenges. The faithful continued to struggle to express their new apostolic faith in new words, new languages, new places and new times. Many issues—the interaction of science and faith, divinity and humanity, Church and State—continue to be pertinent today. This book tells the story of these struggles from the days of the New Testament to the fall of the city of Constantinople in AD 1453. It focuses on the Christian community in the eastern Mediterranean which became known as the Byzantine Empire. Each chapter examines the personalities and theologies entwined at the heart of conflicts that shaped the medieval world as well as the modern cultures of Greece, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

If Richard III had not charged to his death at Bosworth, how different might the history of Britain have been? Beginning in 1453 and ending in 1487, The Red Rose and the White provides a gripping overview of the bitter dynastic struggle for supremacy that raged between the houses of York and Lancaster for thirty years, culminating in the dramatic events on Bosworth Field in 1485. As well as offering a comprehensive account of the campaigns, battles and sieges of the conflict, the book also assesses the commanders and men involved and considers the weapons and tactics employed. Photographs, maps and portraits of the principal characters help to bring the period to life, whilst the fast-paced narrative conveys a sense of what it was actually like to fight in battles such as Towton or Tewkesbury the effect of the arrow storm and the grim realities of hand-to-hand combat with edged and bladed weapons. Skilfully weaving in political and social events to place the conflict in its context, The Red Rose and the White is a fascinating exploration of the turbulent period that would change the course of British history forever.

Europe by Brendan Simms Book Summary:

Half a millennium of European warfare brilliantly retold by masterly historian Brendan Simms At the heart of Europe's history lies a puzzle. In most of the world humankind has created enormous political frameworks, whether ancient (such as China) or modern (such as the United States). Sprawling empires, kingdoms or republics appear to be the norm. By contrast Europe has remained stubbornly chaotic and fractured into often amazingly tiny pieces, with each serious attempt to unify the continent (by Charles V, Napoleon and Hitler) thwarted. In this marvelously ambitious and exciting new book, Brendan Simms tells the story of Europe's constantly shifting geopolitics and the peculiar circumstances that have made it both so impossible to dominate, but also so dynamic and ferocious. It is the story of a group of highly competitive and mutually suspicious dynasties, but also of a continent uniquely prone to interference from 'semi-detached' elements, such as Russia, the Ottoman Empire, Britain and (just as centrally to Simms' argument) the United States. Europe: The Struggle for Supremacy will become the standard work on this crucial subject - and an extremely enjoyable one. Reviews: 'This is a brilliant and beautifully written history. From the Holy Roman Empire to the Euro, Brendan Simms shows that one of the constant preoccupations of Europeans has always been the geography, the power and the needs of Germany. Europe is a work of extraordinary scholarship delivered with the lightest of touches. It will be essential, absorbing reading for anyone trying to understand both the past and the present of one of the most productive and most dangerous continents on earth' William Shawcross 'World history is German history, and German history is world history.This is the powerful case made by this gifted historian of Europe, whose expansive erudition revives the proud tradition of the history of geopolitics, and whose immanent moral sensibility reminds us that human choices made in Berlin (and London) today about the future of Europe might be decisive for the future of the world' Timothy Snyder (author of Bloodlands) About the author: Brendan Simms is Professor of the History of International Relations at the University of Cambridge. His major books include Unfinest Hour: Britain and the Destruction of Bosnia (shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize) and Three Victories and a Defeat: The Rise and Fall of the First British Empire.

His major books include Unfinest Hour: Britain and the Destruction of Bosnia (shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize) and Three Victories and a Defeat: The Rise and Fall of the First British Empire.

The Hundred Years War by Desmond Seward Book Summary:

From 1337 to 1453 England repeatedly invaded France on the pretext that her kings had a right to the French throne. Though it was a small, poor country, England for most of those "hundred years" won the battles, sacked the towns and castles, and dominated the war. The protagonists of the Hundred Years War are among the most colorful in European history: Edward III, the Black Prince; Henry V, who was later immortalized by Shakespeare; the splendid but inept John II, who died a prisoner in London; Charles V, who very nearly overcame England; and the enigmatic Charles VII, who at last drove the English out. Desmond Seward's critically-acclaimed account of the Hundred Years War brings to life all of the intrigue, beauty, and royal to-the-death-fighting of that legendary century-long conflict.

The Walls of Constantinople AD 324–1453 by Stephen Turnbull Book Summary:

The walls of Constantinople are the greatest surviving example of European medieval military architecture in the world. They withstood numerous sieges until being finally overcome by the artillery of Mehmet the Conqueror in 1453, and exist today as a time capsule of Byzantine and Medieval history. This book examines the main defensive system protecting the landward side of the city, which consisted of three parallel walls about 5 miles long. The walls defended the city against intruders, including Attila the Hun, before finally being breached by European knights during the Fourth Crusade in 1204 and, ultimately, destroyed by Turkish artillery in 1453.

Les relations internationales dans l'Europe moderne - 2e éd. by Jérôme Hélie Book Summary:

L’histoire politique à l’époque moderne est faite de guerres que leur grand nombre rend confuses en apparence. Le but de ce livre est donc avant tout de donner un tableau simple et clair des conflits qui ont façonné l’Europe alors qu’émergent des États qui cherchent à affirmer leur puissance par les armes et la diplomatie. Il ne s’agit pas simplement de recenser guerres et batailles, mais surtout de souligner les grands enjeux, dynastiques, territoriaux, politiques ou religieux. Les principaux affrontements sont analysés, en montrant comment ils ont modifié des équilibres aussi fragiles que complexes. Cette histoire des relations internationales ne saurait ainsi se limiter aux rivalités entre les grandes monarchies d’Occident, mais intègre l’ensemble des acteurs européens, de l’Empire ottoman jusqu’au Portugal, sans négliger le poids alors considérable de l’Europe du Nord et de l’Est. Le découpage chronologique proposé permet de considérer une longue période, depuis les grands bouleversements politiques du XVe siècle jusqu’à la veille de la Révolution française. Des cartes et des généalogies fournissent les éléments nécessaires à une rapide compréhension des événements.

The Fall of English France 1449–53 by David Nicolle Book Summary:

Despite the great English victories at Crécy, Poitiers and Agincourt, the French eventually triumphed in the Hundred Years War. This book examines the last campaign of the war, covering the great battles at Formigny in 1450 and Castillon in 1453, both of which hold an interesting place in military history. The battle of Fornigny saw French cavalry defeat English archers in a reverse of those earlier English victories, while Castillon became the first great success for gunpowder artillery in fixed positions. Finally, the book explains how the seemingly unmartial King Charles VII of France all but drove the English into the sea, succeeding where so many of his predecessors had failed.

John Talbot and the War in France, 1427–1453 by A. J. Pollard Book Summary:

John Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury was the last of the celebrated English commanders of the Hundred Years' War. In his lifetime his reputation for audacity and courage gave him an unrivalled fame among the English, and he was feared and admired by the French. A.J. Pollard, in this pioneering and perceptive account, reconstructs the long career of this extraordinary soldier and offers a fascinating insight into warfare in the late medieval period. Talbot was the last representative of generations of brave, brutal warriors whose appetite for glory and personal gain had sustained English policy in France since the time of Edward III. His defeat and death at the Battle of Castillon on 17 July 1453 marked the end of the wars. It was also the final act in a heroic but savage tradition.

City of Fortune by Roger Crowley Book Summary:

A magisterial work of gripping history, City of Fortune tells the story of the Venetian ascent from lagoon dwellers to the greatest power in the Mediterranean - an epic five hundred year voyage that encompassed crusade and trade, plague, sea battles and colonial adventure. In Venice, the path to empire unfolded in a series of extraordinary contests - the sacking of Constantinople in 1204, the fight to the finish with Genoa and a desperate defence against the Turks. Under the lion banner of St Mark, she created an empire of ports and naval bases which funnelled the goods of the world through its wharfs. In the process the city became the richest place on earth - a brilliant mosaic fashioned from what it bought, traded, borrowed and stole. Based on first hand accounts of trade and warfare, seafaring and piracy and the places where Venetians sailed and died, City of Fortune is narrative history at its finest. Beginning on Ascension Day in the year 1000 and ending with an explosion off the coast of Greece - and the calamitous news that the Portuguese had pioneered a sea route to India - it will fascinate anyone who loves Venice and the Mediterranean world.

A Military History of the Ottomans: From Osman to Ataturk by Mesut Uyar Ph.D.,Edward J. Erickson Book Summary:

The Ottoman Army had a significant effect on the history of the modern world and particularly on that of the Middle East and Europe. This study, written by a Turkish and an American scholar, is a revision and corrective to western accounts because it is based on Turkish interpretations, rather than European interpretations, of events. As the world's dominant military machine from 1300 to the mid-1700's, the Ottoman Army led the way in military institutions, organizational structures, technology, and tactics. In decline thereafter, it nevertheless remained a considerable force to be counted in the balance of power through 1918. From its nomadic origins, it underwent revolutions in military affairs as well as several transformations which enabled it to compete on favorable terms with the best of armies of the day. This study tracks the growth of the Ottoman Army as a professional institution from the perspective of the Ottomans themselves, by using previously untapped Ottoman source materials. Additionally, the impact of important commanders and the role of politics, as these affected the army, are examined. The study concludes with the Ottoman legacy and its effect on the Republic and modern Turkish Army. This is a study survey that combines an introductory view of this subject with fresh and original reference-level information. Divided into distinct periods, Uyar and Erickson open with a brief overview of the establishment of the Ottoman Empire and the military systems that shaped the early military patterns. The Ottoman army emerged forcefully in 1453 during the siege of Constantinople and became a dominant social and political force for nearly two hundred years following Mehmed's capture of the city. When the army began to show signs of decay during the mid-seventeenth century, successive Sultans actively sought to transform the institution that protected their power. The reforms and transformations that began frist in 1606successfully preserved the army until the outbreak of the Ottoman-Russian War in 1876. Though the war was brief, its impact was enormous as nationalistic and republican strains placed increasing pressure on the Sultan and his army until, finally, in 1918, those strains proved too great to overcome. By 1923, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk emerged as the leader of a unified national state ruled by a new National Parliament. As Uyar and Erickson demonstrate, the old army of the Sultan had become the army of the Republic, symbolizing the transformation of a dying empire to the new Turkish state make clear that throughout much of its existence, the Ottoman Army was an effective fighting force with professional military institutions and organizational structures.

Román je psán formou deníku mladého muže Jeana Angieho, který nedokázal odhalit skutečný smysl své životní pouti a umírá při obraně hroutícího se města. Umírá i jeho životní láska, dcera předního byzantského úředníka, která se obětuje v naivní víře za město i za čest rodu, v němž nechyběla zrada.

Constantinople by Philip Mansel Book Summary:

Philip Mansel's highly acclaimed history absorbingly charts the interaction between the vibrantly cosmopolitan capital of Constantinople - the city of the world's desire - and its ruling family. In 1453, Mehmed the Conqueror entered Constantinople on a white horse, beginning an Ottoman love affair with the city that lasted until 1924, when the last Caliph hurriedly left on the Orient Express. For almost five centuries Constantinople, with its enormous racial and cultural diversity, was the centre of the dramatic and often depraved story of an extraordinary dynasty.

Fetih 1453 by Eda Bildek Book Summary:

Fısılda artık Hünkârım! Susarsan yok olacağım. Konuş ki yangınımla var olayım! Dokun sözcüklerime, hayat bulsun romanım. Çünkü sensin eksikliği satırlarımın... Ben seni yazmak için seçilmiş hattat! Parmaklarıma tutuşturulan kalemin mürekkebinin renginde aşkın kanı... Yazmayı bıraksam kimse adının içimdeki aşkına dokunamayacak... Yine ne garip Hünkârım, seni yazmasam hattatlığım yarım kalacak... Beni kimse anlamayacak. Dahası adımı kimse bilmeyecek... Bir fetih kitabı yazacaktım, kaftanına kapandım. Rüyan ile sınandım... Ağır sınandım. Gözlerimde fırtınalı deniz... Sağ yanımda surlar, sol yanımda aşk... Üstümde bulut... Refakatimde fethi müjdeleyen Akşemseddin'in sesi... İçimde şehla bakışlarının dokunduğu kuyu... Her şey kuyuya dokundu... Ben susuyorum şimdi, sen konuş Sultanım! Ne olur anlat Hünkârım, aşk ile zafere varsın bakışlar...

Imago Turci. Das europäische Türkenbild 1453-1600 by Julius Burghardt Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Moderne Geschichte, Note: 1,0, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Seminar für Mittlere und Neuere Geschichte), Veranstaltung: Seminar: Die Türkenkriege, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Orient und Okzident, Islam und Christentum – nie waren sich diese einstigen Gegensätze so nah wie heute. Doch dort wo Kulturen aufeinander treffen, kommt es nicht selten zu Reibereien. Die unterschiedlichen Mentalitäten, Traditionen und vor allem Religionen sind oftmals die Quelle tragischer Missverständnisse, die in gewalttätigen Auseinandersetzungen enden können. Viel zu oft stehen Intoleranz und Voreingenommenheit einem friedlichen Miteinander im Wege. Doch woher stammen diese Vorurteile und Feindbilder, die heute jeden christlich-islamischen Dialog erschweren? Um das herauszufinden, müssen wir einen Blick in die Vergangenheit wagen. Die Geschichte der Konfrontation von Morgen- und Abendland reicht bis weit ins Mittelalter zurück. Zwischen beiden Kulturen herrschte seit dem Einfall der Araber in Spanien und Italien ein erbittertes Ringen um die Vorherrschaft in Europa, das mit der Eroberung Jerusalems durch die christlichen Kreuzfahrer 1099 einen ersten blutigen Höhepunkt fand. Die Expansion des Osmanischen Reiches löste schließlich eine neue Eroberungswelle aus, die das Abendland in seinen Grundfesten erschütterte und den westlichen Blick auf den Islam maßgeblich prägte. Moderne Propagandamöglichkeiten verbanden sich mit dem Gefühl einer allgegenwärtigen Bedrohung und erschufen so ein Feindbild jenseits der tatsächlichen historischen Entwicklung. Der Türke, der fortan den Islam verkörperte, wurde zum Symbol für Grausamkeit und Lüsternheit. Es ist das Ziel dieser Hausarbeit, die Entwicklung jenes Türkenbildes im Europa der Frühen Neuzeit darzustellen und die Besonderheiten des anti-türkischen Diskurses herauszuarbeiten.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and.

Sein populärstes und erfolgreichstes Buch ist eine Sammlung von Texten, die er selbst historische Miniaturen nannte. Eine dieser Miniaturen beschreibt jenen 29. Mai des Jahres 1453, an dem eine vergesse Tür den endgültigen Untergang eines einstigen Weltreiches besiegeln und einem anderen Reich den Höhepunkt seiner Macht bescheren sollte. In dieser Hausarbeit beschäftige ich mich mit der Eroberung von Konstantinopel durch die Osmanen, welche damit das Byzantinische Reich nach mehr als 1100 Jahren endgültig zu Fall brachten. Das Hauptaugenmerk wird neben der Eroberung auf der Transformation der christlichen Hauptstadt in eine islamische Hauptstadt liegen.

The Rumen Microbial Ecosystem by P.N. Hobson,C.S. Stewart Book Summary:

The Preface to the first edition of this book explained the reasons for the publication of a comprehensive text on the rumen and rumen microbes in 1988. The microbes of the ruminant's forestomach and those in related organs in other animals and birds provide the means by which herbivorous animals can digest and obtain nutriment from vegetation. In turn, humans have relied, and still do rely, on herbivores for much of their food, clothing and motive power. Herbivores also form the food of carnivorous animals and birds in the wild. The importance of the rumen microorganisms is thus apparent. But, while a knowledge of rumen organisms is not strictly neces sary for the normal, practical feeding of farm animals, in recent years there has been much more emphasis on increasing the productivity of domesti cated animals and in rearing farm animals on unusual feedstuffs. Here, a knowledge of the reactions of the rumen flora, and the limits to these reactions, can be invaluable. In addition, anaerobic rumen-type microor ganisms are found in the intestines of omnivores, including humans, and can be implicated in diseases of humans and animals. They are also found in soils and natural waters, where they playa part in causing pollution and also in reducing it, while the same organisms confined in artificial systems are essential for the purification of sewage and other polluting and toxic wastes.

Contact and Conflict in Frankish Greece and the Aegean, 1204-1453 by Nikolaos G. Chrissis,Mike Carr Book Summary:

The conquest of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade shattered irreversibly the political and cultural unity of the Byzantine world in the Greek peninsula, the Aegean and western Asia Minor. Between the disintegration of the Byzantine Empire after 1204 and the consolidation of Ottoman power in the fifteenth century, the area was a complex political, ethnic and religious mosaic, made up of Frankish lordships, Italian colonies, Turkish beyliks, as well as a number of states that professed to be the continuators of the Byzantine imperial tradition. This volume brings together western medievalists, Byzantinists and Ottomanists, combining recent research in the relevant fields in order to provide a holistic interpretation of this world of extreme fragmentation. Eight stimulating papers explore various factors that defined contact and conflict between Orthodox Greeks, Catholic Latins and Muslim Turks, highlighting common themes that run through this period and evaluating the changes that occurred over time. Particular emphasis is given on the crusades and the way they affected interaction in the area. Although the impact of the crusades on Byzantine history leading up to 1204 has been extensively examined in the past, there has been little research on the way crusading was implemented in Greece and the Aegean after that point. Far from being limited to crusading per se, however, the papers put it into its wider context and examine other aspects of contact, such as trade, interfaith relations, and geographical exploration.
