Episode 6, Part 1: The Decline of Yugoslavia and the Ten-Day War

September 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am

At the beginning of the 20th Century, the Balkans were a powder keg waiting to go off. A spark from a gunman's bullet in Sarajevo ignited the inferno that was First World War. The embers of the conflict in turn fuelled the Second World War, history's deadliest conflict. By the latter's end, the world was changed, as were the Balkans. Under the facade of a slavic union, unseen embers were beginning to glow again. As the 20th Century came to a close, the Balkans would once again ignite into the last great conflict of those 100 years. The consequences of a dying Yugoslavia would ripple across the world, and the first shots would be fired in the country of Slovenia.

This is the beginning of a conflict which would see evils we hoped were long behind us……ones we failed to prevent, and stop.

Music: Hej, Slaveni (Yugoslavia's national anthem, 1945-1992)
