I don't know if anyone else plays this front, but it is quite a fascinating "forgotten front". This Wikipedia picture of Allied troops on the Front sums it up


(From left to right: a soldier from Indochina,a Frenchman,a Senegalese,an Englishman,a Russian,an Italian,a Serb,a Greek and an Indian)

Anyway we've just started a mini campaign at the collapse of Bulgarian resistance, based on the memoirs of some British special ops men who operated on the Front first scenario batrep over here

"Gardeners of Salonica" is a fantastic read if you can find it.

I've done a little work on this front.. I have a scenario for Doiran here as one of my Wargamers Challenges:

Hopefully this is of interest.

Kind regards

Scenario looks great.

Some of the battlefields of this campaign are amazingly well preserved:


And, it's one of the corners of WW1 where the U.S. stayed neutral; in fact, the U.S. maintained an Embassy in Sofia through the war and helped negotiate the final peace between the Brits, French, etc and the Bulgarians.
