Bucharest Peace Treaty of 1913 brought Bulgarians in South Dobrudja, Vardar and Aegean Macedonia the most brutal and most barbarous slavery throughout history. The most barbarous slavery because "Orthodox" Serbs, Greeks and Romanians before signing the contract subjected to the most brutal genocide Bulgarians in the occupied territories. Genocide, to which five centuries of Ottoman rule zabavachnitsa looked like children, because our neighbors, "Orthodox Christians" immediately closed all Bulgarian schools, community centers, Metropolis, churches and monasteries. Speaking Bulgarian language became felony and balgarchetata school started to learn Serbian, Greek and Romanian languages with new "teaching" techniques and methods - mostly without war measure, with fists, kicks, sticks and any other means at hand, fall into the hands of ozverelite foreign teachers - asimilatori.
That bloody "Christian" rule over our compatriots was the main reason for Bulgaria to join the Central Powers in WWI. Because only they, the Central Powers promised liberation of enslaved Bulgarians and their integration into the mother country.
Guided by this national patriotic idea, our army has shown courage and miracles of brilliant examples in the military art. Bulgarian regiments and divisions, led by exceptionally talented officers and generals, amazed the world with their exploits against the far more numerous, better armed and well supplied troops to the triple alliance.
One of the most epic moments, one of the most heroic feats of valiant Bulgarian soldiers and officers, created during World War II Battle of Doiran. Bulgarian soldiers from the Ninth Division Pleven, well prepared and skilfully led by the famous General Vladimir Vazov, gave countless lessons in martial vaunted mastery of French, English, Russian, Greek and Serbian troops. And that those lessons were one of the reasons "peacekeepers" in Paris to be so cruel, brazen and arrogant at the signing of the Neuilly Treaty with Bulgaria. Precisely because of the Pleven Epic Dojran Division extended for at least another year the First World War.
And those lessons in martial art, heroism and sacrifice are described in an excellent manner by the eminent military historian and statesman Nikola Nedev General (then Major Division) in his famous Book Battle of Doiran.
In his book General Nedev tells many fascinating to all episodes of epic and indicate the names of those who died for their country, the freedom of enslaved brothers Bulgarian soldiers and officers along with many pictures that illustrate everyday heroism and greatness of our soldiers.
We are sure that the issue of this book will revive memories of the glorious deeds of the Bulgarian army, strengthen self-confidence and pride of every Bulgarian and will raise the most majestic monument in the hearts and souls of all Bulgarians, descendants of Dojran characters.
For be known far and wide what grandfathers and fathers and we had to follow their example to protect the honor and freedom of our dear motherland Bulgaria.
