Course of Our Times, The
Tito And The Balkan Tinderbox
Program Number


Series Description

Historical survey hosted by Abram Sachar, Brandeis University. Series release date: 1973

Program Description

“The Balkans have been variously termed the International Cockpit, the Cauldron of Diplomacy, the Tinderbox of Europe - the names suiting the dramatic style of the writer, but all pointing up the tempestuous character of life and destiny in this hopelessly fragmented area. This chapter details the tragic role of the Balkans preceding and during World War II, with special emphasis on the rise of Tito and the Partisans, and that bastion that they created in Yugoslavia.”
