We continue World War 100, a reflective countdown to the start of the Great War by looking at a significant precursor of the First World War that started 100 years ago on 29 September - Italo-Turkish War.
The Italo-Turkish War was fought between the Ottoman Empire and the Kingdom of Italy from 29 September 29, 1911 to 18 October 18, 1912.
It wasn't a huge war but coomentators say it sparked nationalism in the Balkan states so played a significant role in the lead up to the First World War.
You can see an actual scanned-in New York Times article from the day after the war started, an extract of which is below.
