Stevan Pavlowitch, the doyen of Balkan historians, is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Southampton and the author of three books published by Hurst, including Serbia: The History Behind the Name and Tito: Yugoslavia's Great Dictator.
Pavlowitch has brought fresh interest to the study of the Second World War in Yugoslavia, in an elegantly written history. -- Professor James Gow, King's College University of London reading your manuscript has provided me with many new insights and has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience -- Dr Klaus Schmider, Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst Highly recommended. * Choice * 'Hitler's New Disorder' promises to become essential reading . . .
