The Italo-Turkish War 1911 was one of the last classic imperial wars over colonial processions between two great powers. But it was in many ways also a first glimpse into what would come during the First World War: trenches, artillery, combat aircraft, motorboat attacks. This war in Ottoman Libya was fought between the Italian Army and Ottoman-led local Senussi forces.

The Italians were nearly as bad as the French.

There was a lot of geopolitics involved in this war and its aftermath.

All of this eventually led to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo by Serbian separatists.

This would signal the start of WW I. ;)
