During the summer of 1821, the Greek forces gained early victory during the Greek War of Independence. The battle against the Ottoman Empire began earlier that year and saw the massacre of 30,000 Turks and Jews. During the Greek War of Independence, they were led by Commander-in-Chief Theodoros Kolokotronis. The war for Tripolitsa, which killed 100 Greeks, led to the city's fall.
What made Tripolitsa a great target was its administrative role in the Ottoman Empire in the Peloponnese. Since the Turks could no longer forage for food and supplies, they quickly gave in as they faced starvation.
The Greek Forces committed massive atrocities against the Turks, killing 30,000 of them, leading to the capture of Tripolitsa. Due to the coordinated set-up of fortified camps around the city, the Turks could not forage for food and water, so they faced starvation.
The Greek offensive against the Ottoman Empire had begun a few months earlier. And the successful siege of Tripolitsa by the Greeks during the summer of 1821 was an early victory for them and was part of the Greek war of Independence.
While plotting the attack and fall of Tripolitsa, the revolutionary Greek Forces knew the importance of Tripolitsa, as it was the administrative center of the Ottomans. And capturing the city would bring them closer to gaining their Independence.
