The period between 1913 and 1923 stands as the central turning point in the modern history of Asia Minor. One could say that the Turkish War of Independence was as catastrophic, definitive, and transformative an event in the Anatolia's history as the Battle of Manzikert in 1071. During this decade of near constant warfare, Anatolia's physical, political, and human landscape was irrevocably altered. The contemporary absence of physical wreckage from the war years does not take away from the profundity of what has been lost or erased. In taking a closer look at the lives of both Muslims and Christians during the years between the Balkan Wars and the founding of the Turkish Republic, this book underscores the sheer totality of the transformation witnessed during this period, as well as the unanimity of the experiences of conflict for those who once lived in the South Marmara.
