The great turkish war goes much deeper than the smoke of field guns, war cries of janissaries and thunder of the polish cavalry in 1683. It was the climax of border tension and ottoman intervention in europe to understand why the ottomans found themselves toe-to-toe with an entire holy league of nations
Sobeyevsky attempted to push the advantage with a coordinated counter-attack into the ottomans hegemony in hungary but it would fail to come to fruition. The ottomans would do their best to avoid major battles and instead harass the christian army, but resulted in over extending themselves leading to their fall.
Vienna was of course an obvious target for ottoman expansion against an enemy it had proven more powerful than. A large hub of culture and trade the reward and pillage would be astronomical not to mention the message it would send to the papacy and all of europe
T.E. Lawrence tries to convince his Arab allies to follow his plan to attack an Ottoman outpost on the Red Sea. Arab aid to the British in WWI had lasting impacts in the post-war statebuilding that took place.
King Faisal tells British authorities that he is aware of their intention to divide Ottoman lands between themselves and the French. The authorities deny this intention, and T.E. Lawrence denies having knowledge of this secret deal. Once King Faisal leaves the room, one of the authorities explains the Sykes-Picot Agreement to T.E. Lawrence. The agreement would eventually create the borders of the modern Middle East.
