Vedette of the Vardar

Vedette of the Vardar

A Maurice Farman MF11 over a typical Ottoman bridge during the Macedonian Campaign in the Winter of 1915.

The Ottoman Empire build many wonderful such bridges in the Balkans. For a specific historical novel, try Ivo Andric’s Nobel-prizewinning “Bridge Over the Drina”.
A marvellous, if occasionally harrowing tale.
