    Beschreibung "This is an account of a journey through the states of Bosnia, Herzegovina, Montenegro, Servia (as the book has it), Bulgaria, Rumania and Russia in 1907. This was the area that was soon to experience conflict through the Balkan Wars of 1912-13, then to be the powder keg that helped start off the First World War. Of interest here is that the author, journalist and adventurer Harry de Windt, took a motion picture cameraman with him, John Mackenzie of the Charles Urban Trading Company. Though relatively little is said of Mackenzie’s actual work (he left before de Windt went on to Russia), the interest is in his very presence, in the tie-up with a British newspaper (the Westminster Gazette), and in the Balkans as a topic of sufficient interest to audiences at home to justify the expense of organising such a venture."
