Rate this:
The roots of the Ottoman Empire go back to 13th-century Turkic nomads who staked claim to a portion of Anatolia and then, strengthened by mercenaries fleeing the Mongol invasion, began hammering at the walls of Byzantium. In this program Rageh Omaar explains how the Ottomans rose and with extraordinary speed conquered parts of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, changing history in ways that are still being felt today. Traveling to Greece and Bosnia, Omaar learns that the Fall of Constantinople remains fresh in the collective memory of Orthodox Christians; and finds a geopolitical rationale for current enmity between Sunnis and Shiites in the 1514 Battle of Chaldiran.
