After the outbreak of the Balkan Wars 1912, Tucović was mobilized in the Serbian Army and participated in the Serbian military campaign in Albania.[1] He sent letters from the front about war crimes against Albanian population which were regularly published in the Worker's Newspaper (Radničke novine).[2] After returning from the Balkan war, he published Serbia and Albania in which he criticize the militaristic policy of the Serbian bourgeoisie:

Unlimited enmity of the Albanian people against Serbia is the foremost real result of the Albanian policies of the Serbian government. The second and more dangerous result is the strengthening of two big powers in Albania, which have the greatest interests in the Balkans.[3]

ReviewsEdit
