Críticas:

'Throughout, Gawrych tells the story with clarity and, although he clearly admires Ataturk's personality and abilities, his judgements are balanced and fair. The Young Ataturk is a valuable addition to the library on the founder of modern Turkey. Where Mango gives us a fuller treatment of Ataturk the man and the politician and Hanioolu presents us the (self-taught) intellectual, Gawrych adds another important dimension: the military Ataturk.'-Erik Jan Zurcher, Times Higher Education, August 2013 'A well-crafted, theoretically rich, tightly argued, and rigorously executed book...the best study on the subject.' M. Sukru Hanioglu, Garrett Professor in Foreign Affairs, Princeton University 'Impeccably researched and clearly written.' Dennis Showalter, Professor of History, Colorado College

Reseña del editor:

Winner of a 2014 Distinguished Book Award from The Society of Military History and Shortlisted for the 2014 Longman-History Today Book Prize Mustafa Kemal - latterly and better known as Ataturk - is without doubt the most famous figure in modern Turkish history. But what was his path to power? And how did his early career as a soldier in the Ottoman army affect his later decisions as President? The Young Ataturk tracks the lesser covered period of Kemal's life - from the War of Independence to the founding of the Republic. George W. Gawrych shows that it is only by understanding Kemal's military career that one can fully comprehend how he evolved as one of the twentieth century's most extraordinary statesmen. Gawrych also contributes to the understanding of Kemal by presenting a systematic and critical analysis of his military writings, orders, actions, and letters as well as his political decisions, speeches, proclamations, and private correspondences. Soldiering helped shape Kemal's critical reasoning, personal values and emotional intelligence. His experiences as an officer and commander forced him to adjust theories to practices in order to solve problems and make decisions. But Kemal was a natural political leader and his broad intellectual interests and personal studies helped prepare him for political leadership. Gawrych demonstrates that in the last year of the War of Independence Kemal excelled as both Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and President of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. Gawrych incorporates previously-unstudied Ottoman archival documents and is the first Western scholar to conduct extensive research on Kemal in the military archives of the Turkish General Staff. This book is essential reading for those seeking to understand the establishment of the Republic of Turkey and the part that Kemal played in that process.
