    For over a thousand years, Constantinople had been the center of the Western world and the defense of Christianity against Islam. Thanks to its strategic location and massive fortifications, it withstood repeated attacks from the east. But in 1453, Mehmet II, sultan of the Ottoman Empire, rallied the forces of Islam against the bastion, determined to take the city by siege. Armed with a 27-foot-long cannon called the Basilica; 80,000 Muslims in April 1453 began their strike against a mere 8,000 Christian troops led by Constantine XI. '1453' is a vivid, intense tale of courage, cruelty, endurance, luck and a battle that changed the world forever.
