By February 1943, the last German and Italian soldiers were driven from Libya and the Allied occupation of Libya began. Tripolitania and Cyrenaica remained under British administration, while the French controlled Fezzan. In 1944, Emir Idris returned from exile but declined to resume permanent residence in Cyrenaica until the removal of foreign control. Disposition of Italian colonial holdings was a question that had to be considered before the peace treaty officially ending the war with Italy could be completed. Technically, Libya remained an Italian possession administered by Britain and France. In 1949, the Emirate of Cyrenaica was created and only Tripolitania remained under direct British military administration. A year later, in 1950, it was granted civil instead of military administration. Idris as-Senussi, the Emir of Cyrenaica and the leader of the Senussi Muslim Sufi order, represented Libya in the UN negotiations, and on 24 December 1951, Libya declared its independence)

ITALIAN WORLD WAR II OCCUPATION ISSUES FEZZAN - French Occupation
1943 selection of 24 covers and cards, variety of frankings and combinations, handstamped on 50c on 50c brown (Sass.PA3), other usages include Fezzan and Ghadames, several items with 1951 surcharges, high values to 480fr, occasional toning, generally fine-v.f., many signed, several with certificates (The Military Territory of Fezzan-Ghadames was a territory in the southern part of the former Italian colony of Libya controlled by the French from 1943 until Libyan independence in 1951. It was part of the Allied administration of Libya. Free French forces from French Chad occupied the area that was the former Italian Southern Military Territory in 1943 and made several requests to annex administratively their Fezzan to the French colonial empire. The administrative personnel retained the former Italian bureaucrats. The British administration began the training of a badly needed Libyan civil service. Italian administrators continued to be employed in Tripoli and the Italian legal code remained in effect for the duration of the war. In the lightly populated Fezzan region, a French military administration formed a counterpart to the British operation. With British approval, Free French forces moved north from Chad to take control of the territory in January 1943. French administration was directed by a staff stationed in Sabha, but it was largely exercised through Fezzan notables of the family of Sayf an Nasr. At the lower echelons, French troop commanders acted in both military and civil capacities according to customary French practice in the Algerian Sahara. In the west, Ghat was attached to the French military region of southern Algeria and Ghadames, the French command of southern Tunisia, eventually giving rise to Libyan nationalist fears that French intentions might include the ultimate detachment of Fezzan from Libya. Fezzan joined Tripolitania and Cyrenaica to form the Kingdom of Libya on 24 December 1951. It was the first country to achieve independence through the United Nations and one of the first former European possessions in Africa to gain independence)

In his message, Dzvonkevich asks his daughter to prevent her mother from coming to Kara. He also asks for boots and tobacco, instructing that all parcels should be addressed to Eastern Siberia, Transbaikal oblast, Lower Kara, in care of His Excellency, the Superintendent of State Criminals.

In 1920, four Turkish divisions under the command of General Karabekir invaded the Armenian Republic, triggering the Turkish-Armenian War. Kars had been fortified to withstand a lengthy siege but was taken with little resistance by Turkish forces on 30 October 1920, in what has been called one of the worst military fiascoes in Armenian history. Armenia was forced to give back all the Ottoman territories granted to it in the Treaty of Sevres. After the Bolshevik advance into Armenia, the Treaty of Alexandropol was superseded by the Treaty of Kars (October 23, 1921), signed between Turkey and the Soviet Union)
