This concludes my WW1 Stats paper, but here are a few paragraphs on Serbia in WW1. After Allied Troops Landed there in 1918, they occupied it and let it become a free country only until the Treaty of Versailles. In 1916, the remaining Serbian troops retreated to Greece, and some fled to Albania. French troops finally made a breakthrough in the Vardar Offensive in 1918 and pushed the Austro-Hungarian and German Troops Back, forcing them to withdraw.

The collapse of the Macedonian Front meant that the road from Vienna to Budapest was now opened for the 670,000-strong army of General Franchet d’Esperey as the Bulgarian surrender deprived the Central Powers of 270 Battalions and 1,500 guns that were previously holding the line. The French, British, and Greek Armies completely pushed the Central Powers out of the Balkans.

After the Allied victory, Serbia was given independence, but only until the Treaty of Versailles. After the Treaty, Serbia, along with other Balkan states, were combined into the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, which eventually became Communist in 1946.
