During World War I, the Balkan nations constituted the majority of the nations of the Central Powers. The Balkans: A History of Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Romania, and Turkey, written during the earliest days of the war by British scholars, presents the history of these nations and treats them with historical objectivity, respect, and sympathy. Though noting the state of belligerency of these nations towards Britain at the time of writing, the authors nonetheless provide an accurate and thorough treatment of the region. Their work, which covers Balkan history from the early medieval period to the twentieth century, demonstrates expert knowledge of the diverse people groups living in the Balkans at that time, as well as their customs and traditions.
