Description
The Balkan Peninsula under Ottoman rule was by far the greatest center of weapons manufacture in the Islamic world, and their firearms, swords, and accessories were exported far and wide. Each town developed its own style in weaponry, decoration, and costume, resulting in numerous artisanal traditions. Weapons were also personalized by their successive owners, with decorations sometimes commissioned to commemorate a gun's success. In this visual history, illustrated with 450 color photographs and reproductions, Robert Elgood explains how the Greek war of liberation in the 1820s brought large numbers of the sultan's soldiers to the country, and how their captured arms fill Greece's museums today.
