Seppings Wright eagerly accepted the post of war correspondent for Central News when, on 2 September 1911, the Italo-Turkish conflict in North Africa broke out. The world looked on as Italy prepared to invade Turkish held Libya in order to gain a foothold in Africa, thus countering French colonies in Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco.The author follows the campaign from its outset, through early skirmishes, to the eventual Turkish evacuation of Tripoli, and the subsequent fighting against Italian expeditionary forces. Finally, as the threat of war in the Balkans forces the Turks to sue for peace, he describes the Italian takeover in Libya. Seppings Wright then follows Turkish fortunes in the First Balkan War against Bulgaria and Serbia.Throughout this book, the author's writings carry a splendidly descriptive narrative; a true-life adventure story in which, with a sensitive and artistic eye, the author plots the course of the conflict.His obvious attachment to the peoples and landscape of North Africa is evidenced through his writing, his exquisite watercolors and pencil sketches.This facsimile also contains the numerous photographs which appeared in the original edition of 1913....
