Recent history should remind us that it was events in the Balkans which
sparked off the Great War, with the assassination of the Austrian heir Prince
Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, and the consequent invasion of Serbia by
Austro-Hungarian armies on 2nd August 1914. Nevertheless, the subsequent
four-year war in that theatre is always overshadowed by the simultaneous
campaigns on the Western Front. For the first time this book offers a concise
account of these complex campaigns, the organisation, orders of battle, and the
uniforms and insignia of the armies involved: Austro-Hungarian, German, Ottoman,
Serbian, Montenegrin, Albanian, British, French, Italian, Russian, Bulgarian,
Greek and Rumanian. Contents: Introduction - the significance of the Balkan
front * The Balkan campaigns - the Austro-Hungarian attack on Serbia;
Franco-British landings in Salonika and subsequent operations; Romanian
declaration of war; Allied attack in Macedonia, and advance on Belgrade *
Armies in the Balkans; orders of battle, organisation, deployment -

Italian; Russian; Bulgarian; Greek; Romanian * The plates - uniforms,
