Hi all,

I'm doing some research works on Bulgaria and its role in Balkan and World wars. I'm looking for some information about the reformed Bulgarian 1st Army in 1944 and 1945. Would anyone please tell me the commander of that army at that period? And we know that Societ Union took over Bulgarian army and put it under command of 3rd Ukranian Front. But did Russian also try to seize Bulgarian navy vessels and air force units?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jasen,

The commander of the 1st Bulgarian Army during 1944 - 1945 was General-Leytenant Vladimir D. Stoychev.

GOOD DAY!

Can anyone give a list of all the Bulgarian generals who died (either combat or noncombat and either retired or active) during the war?

There were no combat deaths of Bulgarian Generals in WW2. As for the other parts of the question, although I'm researching the topic for years now, I can not give you a complete answer.

Sir I know that in 1945 the Bulgarian People's Court sentenced to death several war criminals, including generals. Can you give me their names and the places and dates of their execution.

Pls. let me know.

Dibo,

I just checked with my copy of Rumen Rumenin's Oficerskijat korpus v Bulgaria 1878-1944. There is no entry for a MG Georgi Tanovski, however there is a referal to a Petr Ivanov Tianovski (or Tyanonski) who became Major-General on the 6th of June 1939. Same person as you list?

Kind Regards

No, this one is Georgi Tanovski:

Petar Tanovski is different - see the list on p.3 of this thread...
