Although the Great War continues to attract a great deal of attention from historians, not a single history of Serbia in the First World War exists in English. The publication of Andrej Mitrovi's classic study on the subject, first published in Serbo-Croat in 1984, is therefore both long - overdue and timely. This book is the most complete, single-volume political, social and diplomatic history of Serbia during this crucial period that exists in any language. Professor Mitrovi - a leading Serbian historian whose work is highly regarded across the former-Yugoslavia and in continental Europe - has based his book on an impressive range of primary and secondary sources. He writes with authority, offering a wealth of information.This book deals with a number of key questions, including: the origins of the war; the epic retreat of the winter of 1915/16; internal struggles within the exiled Serbian leadership and its relationship with the Entente governments; the nature of the Central Powers' occupation of Serbia, the resistance and collaboration; Serbia's relationship with Montenegro and with Habsburg South Slavs; and, the origins of the Yugoslav state.
