|Turkish nation has a history of 4000 years.their motherland is central asia(which still contains turkish nations like azerbeycanikazakistan,türkmenistan,özbekistan)
turks were not muslim in the beginning.the were shamanist.there were many turkish nations like huns,gokturks,uygurs in cenral asia.turks were fighting aganist chinese and mongols those time.some moved to west(european huns you may know atilla)
in those moves some turks moved to anatolia beat byzantium and entered anatolia(these turks were muslims because before these times muslim empire helped turks aganist chinese).they build a big empire and stoped many crusades by themselves.but mongols defeated them.turks were seperated.
ottomans conquered those turkish lands and grew.in 1453 MEHMET conquered istanbul.foreigners were living freely in ottoman lands.ottomans were defending them they were not invading.
Ottomans grew and sieged vienna 2 times.conqured too many lands and it was hard to defend it aganist russians,austrians,persians,venice in the same time so they lost many lands.
years passed and.ottomans lost 2 balkan wars.(first was revolt second was land problems)they lost trablusgarp aganist italians.
and we entered 1.world war becuse of germans.we were doing well but germans were taking our troops to europe.we beat whole english naval fleet but we lost 1.world war .too many lands were invaded by italians,armenians,russians,english and french.turks began turkish indepence war in command of atatürk.it is a long story.
atatürk made many revolutions.and this turkey was formed.in 1950's
we joined korean battle.
in 1970 we conquered nort cyprus to help turks living there because rums were killing them.
