Yes, scenes are from Turkish gambit. I had liked the movie..
1877-1878 war, which we call as '93 harbi' had caused loss of lands and history had witnessed a great defence of Plevne.
There are some strange facts abouth this war;
-At begining Tsar did not want to go war with Turks,he avoided it for a long while but strong families and comamnders of army convinced him eventually.
-Russians asked a small town from Turks whiche there was no even one single Moslem/Turk.Turks refused.
-Romania asked indepence from turks,They said if they cant get it, they will assist Russians. So they did;give 50.000 (or 30.000 ..cant remember now) soldiers to Russians.
-Some Turkish Pashas did not want to help Gazi Osman Pasa,cos of jealousy.
I strongly believed this war could be postponded and our loss could be less.
