* The Ottoman Empire at the height of its power plays an important role in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedRevelations''. Most of the game takes place in and around Constantinople, and various factions within the Sultan's court serve as allies or enemies to the Assassins' cause.

During UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the Ottoman Empire fought on the German side. It gave a fairly good account of itself, but in the end lost most of its empire, and upon surrendering, significant chunks of its Anatolian heartland were given--directly or indirectly--to Greece, Italy, and France. However in a curious twist of fate it managed to resurrect itself. The Turkish General Kemal Ataturk, who had distinguished himself at Gallipoli, put himself at the head of a nationalist movement which prevented the total collapse of Turkish independence (ironically, despite being a militant secularist, the mass of peasants who followed him showed up because he managed to convince an assembly of muftis to declare a ''jihad''). Turkey reformed itself from a VestigialEmpire into a nation state under Ataturk who was, for the Turks, sort of a semi-benign cross between a GloriousLeader and a {{Cincinnatus}}. During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII it stayed neutral and was able to do so both because of its formidable if old fashioned army, and because of the [[TheChessmaster geopolitical skills]] of its leaders. During The Cold War the Turks took the anti-communist side and Turkish troops fought with distinction in UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar (amusingly, the [[EnemyMine Greeks]] showed up, too; there are no reports on what they thought of one another). Turkey joined NATO in 1952 as part of the first enlargement, at the same time as Greece. Turkey now has the second-largest army in NATO after the YanksWithTanks.

Oghuz Turks have long and not without justice been reputed to be a ProudWarriorRace. The present day nation of Turkey was descended from the Ottoman Empire which was founded by [[TheHorde border raiders]] in Asia Minor. These formed themselves into a conquering [[TheEmpire Empire]] which was able to subjugate large parts of the Balkans. At one of its [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome key moments]] the Ottomans were, in 1453, able to take Constantinople which was the [[VestigialEmpire last trace]] of UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire. After this they grew to become one of the greatest powers in the world.
