Sources/Info on Bulgarian Generals

Post by Steen Ammentorp » 13 Mar 2002 20:22

In an effort to prevent this forum to be purely "German" and trying to make it "Axis" ;-) I would like ask its member to help me with finding sources or information on Bulgarian generals. Taking into account the normal focus, I don't expect much. Hey! I’m just trying to provoke a response.

So prove me wrong!
Kind Regards
