Military Conscription at the End of and during the Change of Empires in the Multi-Confessional Borderland “Sancak”
Military Conscription at the End of and during the Change of Empires in the Multi-Confessional Borderland “Sancak"
The main aim of this historiographical approach is to examine the recruitment into the military of the local population from the “Sancak” region – which is located nowadays between Serbia and Montenegro – and to investigate the relationship between the state and local population in periods of peace and periods of war/conflict. By looking at conscription as a “continuing process”, I analyse recruitment into the military of various state systems, including, the Ottoman, Serbian, Montenegrin, Austro-Hungarian, and Yugoslav armies. Beginning in the late Ottoman period (1900s) and ending with the creation of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1920s), I will be able not only to investigate recruitment efforts of these states before and during a war in one particular region but also to see the social dimension of the military after a war has ended.
