This book provides a major clarification of the often blurred lines between facts and truth in regard to these events. The authenticity of the killing orders signed by Ottoman Interior Minister Talat Pasha and the memoirs of the Ottoman bureaucrat Naim Efendi have been two of the most contested topics in this regard.

Taner Akçam provides the evidence to refute the basis of these claims and demonstrates clearly why the documents can be trusted as authentic, revealing the genocidal intent of the Ottoman-Turkish government towards its Armenian population. As such, this work removes a cornerstone from the denialist edifice, and further establishes the historicity of the Armenian Genocide.

    An important, brilliant, and wrenching addition to our study of the Armenian Genocide and how the Ottoman Turks planned and implemented the slaughter. The next time someone dismisses or denies the Genocide. . .put this book into their hands. Dr. Akcam is an intellectual force of nature: I named a righteous and kind Turkish physician after him in my novel, The Sandcastle Girls.

    It was this feature article in The Listener (NZ) dated August, 2018 that I got know the name Taner Akcam for the first time and his efforts in proving that Armenian Genocide indeed happened, committed by the Ottoman Empire against its Armenian population between 1915 and 1918 in which over one million individuals (men, women and children) either murdered or died en-route to their final "resettlement" destination in Deyr-i Zor, Syria. And those that survived the death march, nonetheless, killed It was this feature article in The Listener (NZ) dated August, 2018 that I got know the name Taner Akcam for the first time and his efforts in proving that Armenian Genocide indeed happened, committed by the Ottoman Empire against its Armenian population between 1915 and 1918 in which over one million individuals (men, women and children) either murdered or died en-route to their final "resettlement" destination in Deyr-i Zor, Syria.

Get a strong cup of coffee before you venture further into the book because it was that dry; drier and monotonous than Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman; in my experience that is. Having trouble sleeping? Read this book, works better than any sleeping pills on the market and I can attest to that! Then why did I keep on reading it then? Idiot. For the simple reason that the case of Armenian Genocide deserved to be heard, particularly when a continuous denial against it by Turkish government who inherit what's left of the Ottoman Empire at the conclusion of WWI; and by some scholars through their scholarly works. In this book, the author focusses on scholarly works written by Orel and Yuca in their join efforts to discredit a book written by an Armenian by the name of Aram Andonian that describes the systematic efforts done by the Ottoman Empire to annihilate its Armenian population in its territories between 1915 and 1918. Andonian's writing based solely on a testimony of a Turkish official by the name of Naim Efendi. If you persevered through the driest and monotonous segments you'll be rewarded with interesting and sobering read half way towards the end. I cannot help but draw the similarity in process between the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust: It begins with stripping their rights as citizen, then deportation and resettlement (that I'm sure involve dehumanization elements) and then the ultimate annihilation. But best to treat these two dark histories in humankind separately. I do believe that Armenian Genocide did take place (long before I read this book) and it's good to to know from which angles that the deniers come from to deny it. Taner Akcam: Thank you sir, for writing this book. You're a champion of what is good and just in this world and for your effort you're paying it with your freedom, thus says a lot about you as a human being. May God bless you and keep you.
