Interested in the topic. The first book with biographies of Bulgarian generals 1876-1945 was published.
Тодор Петров, Соня Пенкова "Българските генерали 1878-1946. С достойнство и чест" 2021, 220 p.
The first book in the series contains biographical data on the life path and activities of 125 commanders of the Third Bulgarian Kingdom. The emphasis is on their participation in the construction of the Bulgarian army and in the five wars in which Bulgaria participated in the period 1878-1946.

The entire series will cover the names of over 500 Bulgarian generals, part of Bulgaria's military history from the Liberation to its proclamation as a People's Republic.
