With money and some weapons they are attempting to stir the Albanians into a deep suspiciousness of their neighbors.
        Well then, I know just where to send the mounted Albanians first, don't I?
        I'll just let them know that those Turkish agitators have gold in their pockets and they are welcome to it, they can join up with us in Kosovo when they are finished with that.
        (it's kinda scary how easily I can adapt to a mountain warlord mentality)

        That's great news, and the forces along the border with Albania can pull back... but I'm not sure where to send them. I have a coast to worry about and nothing that can stand up to the Turkish Navy.
        I may have to come up with a detailed plan, but it looks as if 10k men may have to stay behind.

        Are there any details on the make-up of this Army? Mounted vs. Dismounted numbers is all I really need.

          Oh, really?
          Sounds like I need to be more specific.
          That fast-moving column of 5k men that went NW will hit a place that was called Plewje back then, and swing SE to clear that valley down to Rozage', which is where we leave off the territory we hope to gain and go over to helping Serbia whip the Turks.

          Prichtina sounds like a good place to meet the Serbs, main body will head there.

            I'm gonna stick to the historica plan more or less. 1st Army will operate alone the Tundzha and prevent enemy reinforcements from entering Adrianople from the east. 2nd Atmy will take Adrianople and the 3rd army will take Kirk Kilisse. The cavalry division will be held in reserve. The 7th Division will attack down the Struma and Vadar Rivers, with the goal of severing Thrace from Macedonia. The 2nd Division will attack the Kircaali detachment in cooperation with the independent brigade from the 2nd army. Once this is completed they will strike eastwards towards Rodosto/Tekirdag.

            Artillery should be allocated as needed, but the majority should be employed in the attack on the main enemy forces around Adrianople.

              Oct.7 1912

              Understood one and all. Destroyer25 the Kircaali detachment is no longer in place. Other then than that your forces advance along the Sturma/Vadar rivers face little opening resistance. Your forces in front of Adrianople face determined and skillful resistance and make little progress. The Turks appear to have been hard at work creating multiple defensive lines. Your artillery although it appears to do considerable dammage to the turk trenches does not seem to have had much affect on the enemy's fighting capabilities.

                Scouts report that the Turkish Vadar and Thessalian armies are no longer close enough to Balkan League forces for them to effectivly estimate their position and strength. Their aproximate position is in between the Struma and Vadar rivers near Salonika.

                  SitRep as of Oct.7 1912. Bulgarian forces encounter stiff resistance in front of Adrianople. The advance of Bulgar forces between the Vadar and Struma river is so far uncontested. Last position of the Turkish Macedonian armies was near Salonika. The Bulgar force in between the Struma and Maritza rivers has encountered a limited Cav. force. It has not seriously slowed the advance. Montegrin and Serb forces have encountered no resistance although it appears that the Turks have removed every source of food in the country. Also the muslim population in Macedonia has seemingly disappeared. Limited sniping attacks have been made on the marching columns but do not appear very serious. Albania seems to be rapidly decending into Civil War as the Tukish agitators have succeeded in stirring the southern half of Albania into a frenzy. Attacks have been carried out all over the country agianst forces allied with Balkan League forces. The weather has been steadily worsening with rain becoming more and more frequent. Also scouts begin reporting that there is a Turk force moving on the West side of the Vadar river. Its exact size is unknown and it is moving very rapidly. For the time being the scouts have lost contact with it.

                    2nd Div and the brigade are to attack east to envelope Adrianople from the west. The Cav Division should follow this advance and be ready for exploitation. The 7th Division should make contact with the Serbs and then continue the advance.

                        Maybe I should clarify something.
                        When I said;
                        Well then, I know just where to send the mounted Albanians first, don't I?
                        I'll just let them know that those Turkish agitators have gold in their pockets and they are welcome to it, they can join up with us in Kosovo when they are finished with that.


                        What I meant was- Since I can't send my own men into Albania until their King asks me, I'll let these Albanians joining me go in to kill & rob the Turkish agitators."
                        It seemed to make sense at the time.

                          Yep I understood. Sorry should have made that more clear. Your allies managed to clear the northern half of the country simply through their presence. However the agitators have proven illusive and in a bin-Laden like move have continued to preach hell-fire and brimstone agianst outsiders from hidden positions deep in the southern mountians. It is possible that the agitators are not Turkish but possibly Muslim Albanians which would explain their unusual success at incitement and their illusive-ness.

                            Meh, it happens. I'll link back up with my new pals later, further sounth.

                            I owe you a new OOB now that I have that info.
                            Your army is composed of 15,000 semi professional infantry, with 30,000 militia of varing quality. Of this 30,000 about 12,000 are mounted raiders

                            Better than I had hoped for, in fact.
                            North; stays the same; 5k mounted militia.
                            Main Army;12k regulars, 10k militia + 5k mounted.
                            Home army/border guard; 3k regulars, 8k militia + 2k mounted.

                            I hope to be able to rotate troops back and forth, but with no RR and poor roads, I'm not sure how we can.

                                City is called Plevlje.

                                Kosovo at the time was largely Serbian with Albanian strong minority.

                                I will divide Greek Army in Thessaly and Epir groups. First,largest will be under command of General Panagiotis Danglis with orders to cross the border immediately.The army consist of 6 infantry divisions (1st-6th) with the 7th Division forming at Larissa, a Cavalry Brigade and 4 independent Evzones battalions.Their mission is to defeat Ottoman 8th Corps, with 2 divisions, in Sarantaporon straits, which had been extensively fortified by a German mission before the war.

                                Epir Army will remain in defensive for now because of lack of equipment and men.

                                GREEK NAVY

                                Armoured cruiser Averof and the old battleships Hydra,Spetai and Psara with respective escorts will start moving to Straits of Dardanelles in order to force Ottoman navy in fight.
                                5 old German torpedo boats will be destined for sudden attack on Turkish fleet in Salonika.Other 8 modern will patrol for Turkish ships.Orders for more boats are placed in Germany and UK,as well order for two French submarines.

                                Rest of the fleet will start disruption actions on Aegean isles.
                                It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

                                Косово је Србија!
                                Never go to war with a country whose national holiday celebrates a defeat in 1389.
