Mon commandement en Orient [My Command in the East]

Memoirs of the French general Maurice Sarrail. Openly socialist, his dismissal following heavy losses suffered by his Third Army in 1914 caused a scandal on the Left and resulted in him being given command of the allied forces in Macedonia. Here he became increasingly involved in local politics, encouraging the formation of the Autonomous Albanian Republic of Korçë and the Venizelist coup against King Constantine of Greece.
