By Richard C. Hall

(Subject: World War I - General) The Balkan Wars of 1912 - 1913, during which the Ottoman Empire fought a coalition of Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro and Serbia, opened an era of conflict in Europe which lasted until 1918, and which established problems which still tormented Europe at the end of the 20th century. Based on archival as well as diplomatic and military sources, this book provides a comprehensive perspective on the diplomatic and military aspects of the Balkan Wars. It demonstrates that The Wars of 1912-1913 were actually the first phase of the First World War.
