1451 AD. After the death of his father, young and novice Nineteen year old Fatih Mehmet, ascends to the Ottoman throne with full authority. Mehmet has one single goal: succeed where his father failed: changing the course of history through the conquest of the elusive Constantinople, the fabled Imperial city of the fledging fifteen-hundred-years-old Roman Empire. The Byzantine fortress had been coveted for hundreds of years, but never succumbed to its attackers. Emperor Constantine is mindful of the threat posed by the Ottomans and carefully plots against them with his allies. But proving to be a very astute politician, a shrewd diplomat and a masterful military planner, Mehmet carefully sets his plan in motion over the next two years, preparing for the ultimate battle: he strengthens his armies, arranges the development of giant cannons, upgrades his naval fleet and initiates the building of a new fortress to cut Constantinople off the maritime trade. In the night of April 1st, 1453, while Easter is celebrated in the streets of Constantinople, tens of thousands of Ottoman soldiers arrive at its gates, facing the giant walls of one of the best protected cities in the world. FETIH 1453, is the epic tale of the Conquest of Constantinople by the Ottomans.
