The Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II begin an attack against the Hospitallers on Rhodes. The assault is unsuccessful — not because the Hospitallers are superior fighters but because the Janissaries go on strike.

Mehmed II orders that they not loot any cities they capture so that he could have all the booty for himself. The Janissaries balk at this and simply refuse to fight.
