The Balkans – The Gordian Knot




5m 49s
The Balkans is often a confusing question and this podcast looks at why it was so difficult for the Great Powers to solve, including the tension created in 1908-1909 and the effects it had on international relations as well as the Balkan Wars of 1912-1913. Was the weakening of the Ottoman Empire creating a vacuum others wanted to fill and how did the Austro-Hungarian Empire deal with Serbia are just 2 of the key questions answered.
