Chapter 30: International Response

Translator: 549690339

Since the outbreak of the Near East War, the Ottoman Empire had relocated its capital to Ankara. Compared to Constantinople, Ankara was truly a remote small city.

Located in the inland mountainous region, with blocked transport routes, it had a population of merely tens of thousands, not even half as many as the administrative staff of the Ottoman Government. Its only advantage was that it was easy to defend but hard to attack.

Following the principle of safety first, the Sultan Government resolutely chose this place. If transportation was blocked, then railways could be built, and England and France were very willing to help.

Even after undergoing modernization reforms, the Ottoman Empire's barbaric nature had not changed. After the failure in the Near East War, the nobility whose interests were harmed during Abdulmejid I's reforms launched a counterattack.
