Four Years Beneath the Crescent [2003]

£50.00

Product description

Published in 2001 by Taderon Press, Sterndale Classics. Originally published in Spanish in 1924. Includes an index.

This work is one of the most incredible accounts of WWI by a former officer of the Ottoman Army. Rafael de Nogales was a Venezuelan mercenary who fought against Russians on the Caucasian and Persian fronts, as well as British armies in Iraq and Palestine. He gives insights into the general Ottoman war effort, relations between Turkish and German allies, and much more. In May 1915 Nogales commanded Ottoman artillery batteries bombarding Armenians besieged in the city of Van. The Armenian issue had a great impact on him, as he witnessed the slaughter of thousands in Van, Bitlis, Siirt and other parts of Ottoman Turkey. Although an anti-Armenian, Nogales' memoirs nevertheless provide invaluable insights into the genocide of Armenians in 1915.

In very good condition. Generally crisp and clean with a tight binding. Has a couple of finger marks on the contents page, and some surface marks to the cover.
