The old fort w'as abandoned us a

Austria is generally regarded aa hav

which resulted In King l-Vrdinaml of
Bulgaria attacking the Servians. Set -via,
Greece. Rumania and Turkev
overwhelmed BulgMta in this war.
During this conflict, Austria occupied
the eanjak of Xovl Ra.ar. This is a
Strip of territory between BJontsn
s40 ami Ban In It belonged to Tur
kev before the war of 1912. This step
placed an Austrian wedge between
the Servians and the people of the
same race In Montenegro, further re
tarding the efforts for the unification
of the Serbs

Austria has maintained a strong ar
