The conflicts in the Balkans during the 20. century are a complicated issue: emerging nations, the fall of the Ottoman Empire around at the same time as the Austria-Hungary Empire, and the enormous interest bigger powers have shown in this region, and are still showing today. A very good book on the issue is "Black lamb grey falcon' by Rebecca West.
