                                    DALMATIAN (CROATIAN) HISTORY
 In 1918--after the surrender of Germany, Austria-Hungary & its allies, a number of after-war boundaries remained to be settled. Italy, an American ally, had ambitions to gain territories along the Dalmatian coast, where they had a minority population. But President Woodrow Wilson proposed boundaries along majority-language lines instead. A number of confrontations resulted among forces that were recently allied. In little-known maneuverings, the American forces ousted the Italian military from the island of Trau / Trogir & adjacent areas of the Dalmatian coast (now in Croatia). All this was prior to Wilson's stroke and the treaties that settled most of these lands as Jugoslavian. The following extraordinary sepia-tone real photo postcards were taken & annotated by a US sailor during that period, November 1918 - May 1919, Among other things, they document the enthusiastic reception given to the Americans by the majority populace there. When we searched the Internet we were unable to find the likes of these photos from any source. Presented in chronological order, rather than by caption, these surviving photos present exceptionally interesting history ...

SOUTH PACIFIC HISTORY
Historical note:
After World War I, a treaty among the 3 major naval powers  left the United States without bases in the Western Pacific region--unlike the other powers, Great Britain & Japan. Concern about the relative proximity of Japanese bases on their home islands (roughly 1/5 the distance of Pearl Harbor) caused the US to project its power & maintain a presence in the region by using the only option it had available--cruises in force during the 1920's. Australia, understandably among the nervous about the nearby Japanese, thus welcomed the US naval visits, as the postcards below attest.

VIETNAMESE HISTORY

"3331. TONKIN -- Son Exellence le Kham-Saï / marchant contre le Dé-Tham (Été 1909)" black & white carte postale addressed & messaged in French, when the country was called French Indo-China. The campaign of His Excellency Kham-Saï (Governor of Tonkin, the man in the center, in distinguishing garb) in the summer of 1909 was not successful. Dé-Tham had a price put on his head by the French Governor-General Klobukowsky after an unsuccessful attempt to take Hanoi, but was beheaded much later in his sleep on March 18 1913 -- ending a conflict that had lasted a quarter century. The shoeless but medaled man on the right signals to the viewer that some of the Governor's best & fearless men were going on the mission. Tonkin now lies completely in North Vietnam. The horse shown is a Vietnamese Hmong, diminutive in size, thick mane cropped to form a crest, prized for sure-footedness in mountainous terrains where Dé-Tham was known to be hiding, and thus appropriate. Publicizing this ill-fated campaign, Frenchman Louis Toullaine addressed the postcard to his niece Mademoiselle Luçienne Toullaine in Paris.
