Still image from The Siege Of Constantinople

Constantinople served for centuries as the gateway to Europe and a fortress for Christianity. Its massive walls protected it from Muslim invaders until 1453 when 21-year-old Sultan Mehmet was determined to take the city. War's newest technology, the cannon, and brilliant strategy led him to victory. Renamed Istanbul, the city served as the heart of the Ottoman Empire for over 500 years.
