Armies in the Balkans 1914-18 Paperback
by Nigel Thomas
Illustrated by Darko Pavlovic
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
It was the Balkan flashpoint which set off World War I, yet the fighting there is curiously neglected, although it was an inportant 'second front' cutting the Central Powers in two and preventing direct German/Turkish co-operation.
The campaigns in the Balkans in 1915-18 involved the British, French, Russian and Italian armies, together with the local Serbian, Montenegrin, Greek and Rumanian forces, fighting German, Austrian and Bulgarian troops.
This concise but comprehensive account identifies, describes and illustrates all these forces.
The text is illustrated with rare photographs never before seen in the West, and with full orders-of-battle and insignia charts.
