Abstract:

While the title indicates that the subject of this study is the Operations of the Second Bulgarian Army in 1915, the purpose may be expressed more clearly as an investigation of the operations of a semi-independent military force approximating in strength a war-time United States Corps. This Army at its maximum consisted of approximately four infantry divisions and one cavalry division. These divisions appear to have been somewhat smaller estimate 18,000 than our division. The principal differences were in artillery strength and corps troops. 1 The total Bulgarian forces in 1915 consisted of 36 regiments first line of 4 battalions each, with reserves of equal strength, and regiments of cavalry. The artillery for the total force was limited to 9 regiments 4 batteries of 4 guns each, 24 mountain batteries and 6 battalions of fortress artillery. There were in addition, pioneer troops, railway troops, ponton battalions, telegraph battalions and other technical units.
