The manga is described as:
For generations the Turkiye Devleti and the Balt-Rhein Empire have stood in stern opposition of each other. Then one night, when an imperial minister is found assassinated, the two nations are plunged into a potentially explosive situation. As the generals of Turkiye’s council cry for war, Mahmut comes to discover the devious truth behind the assassination. Thus the young pasha’s battle for his country, peace and trust in his fellow man begins.
Katō launched the Altair: A Record of Battles manga in Monthly Shonen Sirius in 2007. Kodansha Comics is publishing the manga digitally in English.
