Dear List Members,
Kemal Karpat puts the number of Hungarian refugees who fled to the Ottoman Empire at around 16,000. The vast majority of these were troops and various dependents, yet most of the secondary literature focuses on the elite in exile--either framed in terms of foreign or domestic politics, or as agents of modernization.
Would anybody be able to make any recommendations for primary or secondary literature (English/German/Turkish, unfortunately not Hungarian) that might discuss the experiences and roles of the non-elite---soldiers, dependents, other members of the entourage?
Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
