Summary
"Over the centuries, in Western eyes, the Turks always appeared the sole aggressors. Andrew Wheatcroft makes clear that this is a grievous over-simplification: during the 400-year struggle for domination the West took the offensive just as much as the East. Today, modern Turkey is seeking to re-orient itself towards Europe; against this, a new generation of politicians are exploiting the residual fears and tensions between East and West. The Enemy at the Gate provides a timely and masterful account of this most complex and epic of conflicts."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
In 1683, two empires - the Ottoman, based in Constantinople, and the Habsburg dynasty in Vienna - came face to face in the culmination of a 250-year power struggle: the Great Siege of Vienna. This work provides an account of this complex and epic of conflicts
