This is the first of two volumes which, after a brief background review of Macedonia and its neighbours, and the conflict between Austria and Serbia which triggered The Great War, picks up the story from the landing of British and French troops at Salonika in northern Greece and takes it up to the abdication of the pro-German King Constantine of Greece and the entry of Greece into the war on the side of the Allies. The last of the military operations covered in this volume is the April/May 1917 allied offensive known as the Battle of Dojran; British divisions in the theatre consisted of 10th (Irish), 22nd, 26th, 27th (reg), 38th (reg) and 60th (2/2nd London, TF); the latter was transferred to the EEF in June 1917 and fought in the Palestine campaign
