Mehmed the Conqueror and His Time : World Striker at a Turning Point in History
The German biography of Mehmed II by Franz Babinger, 1959 is now availabe in our open access collection MENAdoc.
The classic standard work on the seventh sultan of the Ottoman Empire traces his life in great detail from his birth in 1432 to his death in 1481. Babinger has given a true portrait of a man little understood in his time and who has been controversial in historiography ever since.
The book appeared exactly 500 years after Mehmed’s conquest of Constantinople. It contains numerous illustrations and maps on its almost 600 pages.
