Ottomans and Armenians. A Study in Counterinsurgency. Author: Edward J. Erickson, (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), 299 pages.

Abstract: This article focuses on the questions of insurgency and ‘military necessity’ as a reason for moving the bulk of the Armenian population from the eastern provinces of the Ottoman Empire in the second half of 1915. It looks at precedent and parallel cases of ‘relocations’ in military history and follows the course of the war as it was fought by the Ottoman government from late 1914, on the battle front and behind the lines, until the Van uprising of April, 1915, precipitated the decision to ‘relocate’ the Armenian civilian population.

Keywords: Ottoman Empire, World War I, Committee for Union and Progress, Russia, Britain, Sarikamis, Van, Caucasus, Syria, Armenians, Kurds, Assyrians, relocation, insurgency, Teskilat i-Mahsusa, druzhiny, wartime trials.
