In 1918, the Bulgarian army had to face poor morale, a much more fearful enemy than
the Entente. Poorly equipped and undernourished, Bulgarian soldiers were concerned
about their beloved ones at home, who suffered because of a shortage of food and profiteering.
The number of civilians killed by diseases and famine was so high that, in many
towns, women took to the streets. In the summer of the same year, a new government came
to power, hoping to keep the situation under control. The victory of the Entente’s troops
at Dobro Pole caused the collapse of the Bulgarian front. Thousands of rebelled soldiers
marched towards Sofia. Withdrawing from the War was the only way out. On the same
day when the rebelled troops were defeated in the suburbs of Sofia, an armistice was concluded
at Salonika. Bulgaria was the first combatant in the camp of the Central Powers
that exited from the Great War.
