Hello everyone,

Does anyone know the internal organization of the different types of units of the Turkish army during the Crimean War?
Thanks.

I do have some notes I made from various websites but I will see if I can find some links to the Internet sources I used. I'm not an organised researcher of such things so may not have kept the details.

What I can say is that relatively few Turkish units for which reliable data exists (and that isn't many) seem to have the same organisation as each other. The gap between the 'official' or theoretical unit strengths and structures is probably wider than in most nations of the time.

@GildasFacit
Thank you, because what I was looking for is in your second link.

"Turkey and the Crimean war: a narrative of historical events by Slade, Adolphus, Sir, 1802-1877" could be interesting, but I cleaned up my computer and my USB keys and will never download anything again.

However, I know where to find it now thanks to you.

@DisasterWargamer
Thank you ,"Observations on the Turkish contingent, by a field officer of the force By Turkey army 1856" could be interesting, but I cleaned up my computer and my USB keys and will never download anything again.
