The Turkish Republic was formed out of immense bloodshed and carnage. In the years leading up to the ascendancy of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, virtually every town and village throughout Anatolia was wracked by intercommunal violence. Sorrowful Shores presents a unique history of these bloody years of social and political transformation.
