Its fall from power had been gradual, but by the early years of the twentieth century, the collapse of the mighty world that had once stretched to the gates of Vienna seemed increasingly inevitable.

New Balkan states – Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Greece – combined forces in the First Balkan War (1912-1913) to bring about its downfall. But with victory in their grasp, they were soon at one anothers throats. This book contains 83 selected and edited consular dispatches and reports sent to the Foreign Office in London focusing on events in Macedonia during the Balkan Wars of 1912-1914. They reveal the extent of human suffering in the southern Balkan region in this period and provide much insight into the realities of the Balkan conflagration as it affected Macedonia and its environs.

As a first-hand, on-the-spot account, this is an invaluable source for historians of twentieth-century Europe, the lead-up to World War I and the Ottoman Empire.
