The Diary of Sami Yengin, 1917-18: The End of Ottoman Rule in Syria
ABSTRACT
My aim is to tell a story about the Ottoman army in Syria1 during World War I through the experiences of Sami Yengin, a twentytwo- year old Turkish-speaking conscript from Kopalista-which was part of Ottoman Vilayet of Drama (in what is, today, Eastern Macedonia).
