Description

This is a rich yet succinct account of an underexplored story: the consequences of the Great War for the region which ignited it. It offers a fascinating tapestry: the collapse of Empires, the birth of Turkey and Yugoslavia, Greece as both victor and loser, Bulgaria's humiliating defeat; bitter memories, forced migrations, territorial implications and collective national amnesias. The legacies live on.

The contributions in this volume significantly enhance the debate about how the Great War is remembered in South East Europe, and why it still evokes such strong emotions and reactions, more than a century after its beginnings.


"While there is a growing body of work on the global consequences of the First World War, little attention has been paid to the war's legacy in the Balkans, where the conflict began. In this fascinating book, experts on the region explore the impact of war on the politics and memory cultures of the states of the Balkan peninsula and identify unresolved questions that retain the potential to stir conflict today. Essential reading for anyone interested in the long afterlife of the First World War." - Sir Christopher Clark, Regis Professor of History, University of Cambridge, UK
