  • The Second Solun Front

    During the war, Yugoslavias defensive plan was to hook up with the Greeks and the British and then form another Solun Front. Due to German breakthrough from Romania, this was not possible. But what if something went wrong and the passage for the Yugoslavian army remained open? What if they would have been able to pass and form another Solun Front with the British and the Greeks? How would this affect the war situation?

    Personally, I think the only diffrence would be that the demise of Yugoslavias and Greek army would take longer and the British would have been able to put a tad more resistance. Nevertheless, none of them could efficiently fight the german Blitzkrieg and it would bring to a downfall sooner or later. However, it would delay Barbarossa even further.

      I'm not familiar with this...can you give me a context? Are we talking about 1941?

          This would have delayed and weaked the German advance into the Soviet Union further.

            That may have turned out well for the Germans, if they had enough sense to realize that a late July or August invasion was too late in the year.
