Birds Without Wings tells of the inhabitants of a small coastal town in south-west Anatolia in the dying days of the Ottoman empire. When jihad is declared against the Allies the young men of the town are sent to war. Karatavuk soon finds himself at Gallipoli where he experiences the intimate brutality...

of trench warfare, the loss of many comrades and of his own innocence.

As the great world intrudes, the twin scourges of religion and nationalism lead to forced marches and massacres, hunger grips the town and the peaceful fabric of life is destroyed.

Epic, yet profoundly humane, Birds Without Wings is a glorious tale by one of our finest and best-loved writers.
