WW1 – Macedonian Front Line Tour

Average Reviews


The Macedonian front, also known as the Salonica Front (after Thessaloniki), or as Balkan Front, was a military theatre of World War I formed as a result of a war of the Allied Powers France, Britain, Ireland, Serbia, Greece, in the fall of 1915, against the combined attack of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Bulgaria. The front was established running from the Albanian Adriatic coast to Struma River, pitting a multinational Allied force against the Bulgarian Army, supported by smaller units from the other Central Powers. The Macedonian Front remained quite stable, despite local actions, until the great Allied offensive in September 1918, which resulted in the capitulation of Bulgaria. On the site of the present territory of N. Macedonia, 60,000 Bulgarians and Germans were killed, wounded, or captured. The Allies suffered 50,000 battle casualties, but another 80,000 men died or were evacuated due to sickness. Many of them were of Macedonian origin.
