War by Revolution : Germany and Great Britain in the Middle East in the Era of World War I Paperback / softback

Description

German leaders believed that in the event of a war among European powers, they could organize and exploit a unified Islam.

In addition to providing military assistance to the Ottomans, they collaborated with the Turks in appealing to pan-Islamism to stoke the fire of native Muslim revolts against the British in Egypt and India, and they inflamed anti-British passions in the Turkish provinces of Arabia and Mesopotamia and in Libya, Abyssinia, Persia, and Afghanistan.
