The Ottoman Empire began its struggle for sovereignty in the Mediterranean and its surrounding seas between the 15th and 18th centuries. The struggle eventually led to a rule of law and order in the region. The empire's naval journey is revealed in the book Osmanlı Akdenizi (Ottoman Mediterranean). Written by İdris Bostan, the book serves as a reference enriched by maps, miniatures, engravings, and paintings along with archival documents.
