THE BALKAN WARS 1912-1913: PRELUDE TO THE FIRST WORLD WAR

by Richard C. Hall




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.

AIRSHIP NAVIGATOR

by E. A. Johnston, OBE, FRAeS

One Man's Part in the British Airship Tragedy. Ernest Livingston Johnston, was the author's father. He became an airship pilot in the Royal Naval Air Service in 1916 and lost his life when the airship R101 crashed into a hillside near Beauvais, to the north of Paris, in October 1930. The book tells the story of British airships from the viewpoint of one man who flew them between 1916 and 1930. The book also contains an account of some pioneering commercial aeroplane operations in which he was involved in the formative years 1923-27 and a re-examination of the evidence relating to the loss of the R101
