Just did a quick wiki , think I’ll give that book a miss…
That would certainly be my understanding of it. Probably can be traced back as being retaliation against the Ottoman Empire - not that anything can defend what was going on in the Balkans 20-28 years ago…
I read quite a few books about the Balkans as I was trying to get a better understanding of the reasons behind the war & politics post-Yugoslavia, but what went on there in WW2 was shocking.
As if the gas chambers weren’t bad enough . Just reading a few instances of what happened there would keep you up at night .
I did read another book on Balkans history going back to ottoman times- I got it from Ballymun library- can t remember the title or author- but its seriously difficult trying to get to grips with it. Amount of various ethnic and religious conflicts makes norn iron look straight forward. Strange part of the world really .
Started re-watching the walking dead from season 1 last week. Just finished season 2. Probably the best season of them all I reckon. I’ll probably say that after season 3 too though.
I’ve been forced to watch The Crown the last two days . I’m not usually into this period stuff but it has actually been ok . John Lithgow very good as Winston Churchill. Matt Smith as Philip plays the part very well , exactly how I’d think Philip to be or as he’s portrayed in the media now adays .
Excellent show and brilliantly acted. Like yourself I wouldn’t usually be interested in period stuff, but I like this. A reliable friend recommended it, so I gave it a shot. Halfway through season 2 now. Really enjoying it. Great insight into the royal family if, like me, you have no real interest in them. And I think it covers the British political scene well.
“Save Me” on Sky Atlantic
2 episodes in and it’s absolutely superb
It’s on demand too
On the list to watch big fan off Stephen graham. Fantastic actor along with Lenny James.
Agreed, watched 2 episodes last night. Brilliant
Watching a lot Frasier recently, since John Mahoney died.
Still sharp as f*ck.
On the list also.
Watching American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Quite good. 1st season about OJ Simpson was very good.
I’d say that’s very stylish…
4 episodes in and still very good. Sky Atlantic do some very good shows
Where are you watching this? It’s not on Netflix?
It started on BBC last week
As @Maxi88 said it started on BBC last week but it is 6 episodes in in the States, watching it from there.
