An interesting series on war in the twentieth century is being broadcast in the U.S. on public television. It's hosted by Niall Ferguson and is based on his book, which is a revisionist history, considering problems of race and ethnic cleansing as early factors in the world wars. There is a section on the Armenian Genocide, which term he uses, as well as material about the destruction of the Armenian and Greek communities of Smyrna.
