Reviews of A Massacre Averted: An Armenian Town, an American Nurse, and the Turkish Army They Resisted

“No empire collapses quietly. A Massacre Averted: An Armenian Town, an American Nurse, and the Turkish Army They Resisted┬áis a history of the falling of the Ottoman Empire and the massacre that almost came down upon an Armenian town. An American relief nurse was sent there, and chronicles the events of the crisis, painting a picture of this major shift in world history and the resistance shown to the Turkish army. A Massacre Averted is an educational walk of history and story of unsung heroes. Highly recommended reading; core addition to world history collections.”
