From the uniforms and the weapons we can conclude that the movie is about the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878.

The film accurately portrays the ugly face of war.

For the record this war ended in overwhelming Russian victory, as usual. The Russian Army advanced as far as the suburbs of Istanbul, and only British intervention prevented them from seizing the capital and dissolving the Ottoman Empire.

As a result of their defeat, the Turks had to cede large territories to all Balkan nations and to Russia.

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.

Regards from home town of 'Nene Hatun'
