The main purpose of this study is to examine the military dimensions within the framework of the general dimensions of the modernization trend of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century and to contribute to the military modernization literature together with the evaluations obtained. In addition to the political, administrative, cultural and economic modernization movements that started from the 18th century and lasted until the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, new structures in the military field can be expressed as an action that the Ottoman Empire seriously emphasizes and delays its erasure from the pages of history. Unlike the literature that examines the modernization processes of the Ottoman Empire in a general context, the study aims to contribute to the military dimension of the modernization literature by examining the historical processes that made military reform and change movements important, and evaluating the solution proposals, the measures taken and the military reforms put into practice from different perspectives. Although the Ottoman Empire was destroyed and lost its place in the history page, the modern Turkish army, which he left behind, was able to achieve success against the front, especially during the First World War and the War of Independence. Therefore, in this study, the military modernization process of the Ottoman Empire and the military reforms experienced in the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century were examined and evaluated together with the findings obtained.
