Abdul Majid II in Southern VictoryEdit

Abdul Majid II was the 37th Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, rising to the throne in the 1920s. He continued the policy of persecuting Armenians started early in 1915, despite the protestations of his country's ally, the United States. This practice tapered off with the end of the decade.

Under Abdul Majid, the Ottomans reluctantly entered the Second Great War as a German ally, and while the Empire benefited little, it was once again on the winning side of a major global war.
