Yes, Bulgaria and Germany have been allies since 1 March 1941.

Claudiu,

Bulgaria Faced with choosing between military confrontation with Germany and accession to the Axis powers, King Boris III had Bulgaria join the fascist in 1941.

On September 5 1944, the Soviet Union declared war on Bulgaria and on September 8, the Red army invaded the territory of Bulgaria. The Bulgarian army had been ordered to offer no resistance. The Red Army occupied the northeastern end of the country and its two major harbors, Varna and Burgas. In this situation, on the eve of September 9, Sofia garrison detachments under the command of Zveno-supporting officers, acting under orders of the Fatherland front, entered strategic key-points in Sofia, overthrew the Government and placed the ministers under arrest. Nazi Germany hastily sent small divisions to invade Bulgaria at several points of entry but these were quickly repulsed!

Regards
PM

Hi Benoit,

Apart from a couple of border incursions, I don't think that the Germans seriously tried to invade Bulgaria in September 1944 (unless you are including Macedonia in wartime Bulgaria). They only tried to hold the border passes with 11th Luftwaffe Field Division and 7th SS Mountain Division to buy themselves time to withdraw from Greece, which they did successfully.

Cheers,

Sid.

Not only.... ;) From september 1944 to 15.05 1945 Bulgarian army fought on the territory of Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and Austria for the liberation of Europe. Bulgarian army was part of the great Balaton defence operation, defeating the german 91 corps and 13 SS division "Handshar".The bulgarian armored brigade annihilated 7 SS Gebirgs-Division "Prinz Eugen" and defeated 21 SS division "Skenderbeg".
The heroism of Bul. soldiers is not disputable. For example:Corporal N. Paskalev from the Paraschute battalion destroyed german bunker like a kamikadze!

Looks like an Opel to me.But I am not 100% sure

Here's a photo from http://www.autogallery.org.ru/blitz36.htm

(IMG:http://www.autogallery.org.ru/k/o/blitzsk1.jpg)

There were so many variants (for fuel truck as well) that is hard to believe it is anything else than a Blitz.Afterall,more than 100.000 were built.

At the right side of the photo, the wing of a Bulgarian Ju 87D Stuka can be seen (after Sept. 1944).

You are right-this is bul .Stuka after 18 september,because the end of the wing is white.But the truck,I think is just present from the germans,or is taken by Bulgarian army. I am sure,that it is not painted in Bulgaria...
