Summary/Abstract: The start of the war in Europe in 1939 by the main proponent of the revision of the Versailles peace settlement, Germany, influenced also the Kingdom of Yugoslavia who was one of the mainstays of that settlement in South-East Europe during the inter-war period. Although they had proclaimed their neutrality, the Yugoslavs keenly watched the war events in Europe until the war engulfed them too in April 1941. Mladen Žujović also reported on the war in Europe in the magazine of the Serbian Cultural Club, the Serbian Voice, watching attentively the development of military operations in Europe, the economy and propaganda of the conflicting parties with his sympathies obviously on the side of the Western allies, France and Great Britain. His reporting ended in June 1940 when the Serbian Voice was suppressed by the censorship due to the paper’s increasingly severe criticism of Yugoslav foreign and domestic policy.
