Europe endured incessant political discord throughout the twentieth century, and some historians refer to the period's conflicts as the Long War. During the Balkan Wars of 1912–13, regional fighting in southeastern Europe ignited conflict across the continent which continued through both world wars and the Cold War. This book illuminates the complex diplomatic and military struggles of a region whose instability, rooted in nineteenth-century nationalistic fervor, provided a catalyst for the political events that ensued. From the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 to the incarceration of Radovan Karadzic in 2008, this narrative history offers a fresh interpretation of a complicated and brutal era.

Keywords: Long War; Balkan wars; southeastern Europe; Franz Ferdinand; assassination; Radovan Karadzic; Cold War
