Henry Pozzi's "War Is Coming Back" was published in 1935, at the daybreak of the Second World War. It describes the intricate political situation in Eastern Europe and is a warning of an eventual conflict between Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia. The whole book is a passionate, somewhat pathetic, appeal for moral international relations.
After the book has been published, it was prohibited in Greece and ex-Yugoslavia. The French press, on the one hand – gave a silent reception to it, and on the other hand – a flood of invective. Notwithstanding, for several months in France were sold about thirty thousand copies, and another ten thousands were distributed world-wide. Two months after the publication of the book the Supreme Court of Serbia sentenced in Pozzi's absence to twenty years compulsory labour, and the book – to death.
This Henry Pozzi's book now seems somewhat naive and romantic, but what nobody can deny is the honest position of its author.
