Excerpt from The Causes of the Great War The outcome of the Balkan War made it nearly certain that this could not be done again, for the results of the war involved a change in the great game which the rival powers were playing. Down to 1913 Germany and Austria had gained advantages in the Balkans and reduced the prestige of Russia. Rumania was almost an appendage of the Triple Alliance, Turkey was coming to be considered so, and the other countries were weak, hemmed in by hostile neighbors, or distracted with local quarrels. It might seem that while Germany held Russia in check, Austria would march in triumph to Salonika. But the events of 1912 and 1913 produced a revolution. Servia, Montenegro, Bul garia, and Greece, combining suddenly, fell upon Turkey and overwhelmed her in rapid and decisive campaigns, and when Austria, appalled by the sudden turn of events would have inter vened to stay their progress, the opposition of Russia prevented her taking any action. The final result was the appearance of a group of powerful Balkan States who looked rather to Russia than central Europe.
