A HISTORY OF TURKIC EMPIRE AND TURKS IN THE TANG MILITARY PART 1. 突厥汗国

http://dragonsarmory.blogspot.com/2018/02/a-history-of-turkic-empire-and-turks-in.html

The military of the Tang Dynasty was staffed with a large population of Turkic soldiers and generals, referred to as Tujue in Chinese sources. The warrior aristocracy in northern China were familiar with Turkic culture, a factor that contributed to the Tang acceptance of Turkic recruits.

In this chapter, we will cover the emergence of the Turkic people, the meteoric rise of the Gokturk Empire, its internal rivalries and the division of the empire in the aftermath of Taspar Khagan's death. Tune in the next chapter for the record of Turkic generals and generalissimos in the Tang military.
