Onur İşçi on Turkey-Russia ties during the Second World War and today

March 3, 2020

Onur İşçi on “Turkey and the Soviet Union during World War II” (IB Tauris/Bloomsbury). The book counter-intuitively argues that the breakdown in Turkey-Soviet relations in the Second World War and at the start of the Cold War was an anomaly in a 20th century in which Turkey and Russia in fact cooperated widely.
