Context

[Preliminary Entry] The siege of Vienna by Turkish forces came at the end of a century of war in eastern Europe between the Ottoman empire, Russia, Austro-Hungary and Poland. In retrospect the siege was the high-water mark of Ottoman expansion which began as the Ottomans moved out wards from Anatolia (1300-1400) and finally ended in defeat during the First World War, leading to the formation of the modern Turkish Republic in 1922.
