“I had been particularly struck by Helen’s description of the Janissaries, a crack corps of guards selected from the ranks of captured boys from all over the empire.Boys born Christian and raised muslim”. This picture is courtesy of wikipedia where we learn that they were the first soldiers with regular uniforms , they were paid a salary and marched to music. It is also true that they came from abducted Christian boys who were forcefully converted to Islam.
