Here's what I've found on a Bulgarian web site related to Rumania's participation in what they call 'The Russo-Turkish War of Liberation, 1877-1878':

Rumania's involvement

Description of the war

At a glance, I was very surprised to learn from that site that there was a war in 1885 between Serbia and Bulgaria.

2 nations related (South Slavic), with the same writing (Slavic), with the same religion, and with the same main enemy: The Ottoman Empire. :blink:

Very interesting.
It also has a large number of details that are not found on any other sites.
But if anyone wishes to learn more about the Romanian-Russian-Serbian-Turkish War or the War of Independence for un Romanians I strongly recomend "Armata romana in Razboiul de Independenta 1877-1878" from the Traditii Militare collection by I. Scarfes & Co. It has an English summary.

Florin,
There is no love lost betwen Bulgaria and Serbia.
The writing they use is called "chirilic",from the name of one of the monks that invented it.
All the best

Try here: http://www.editurasigma.ro/R/P-carte/carte...de-independenta

Unfortunately the Publisher's site is only in Romanian. I think you could send them a message and ask how to get it. The price is about 15 Euros.

Good luck!

I got a copy from them and I am in the UK too, but I don't think they spoke English to me. If you know how to read some Romanian, ordering through their site is quite easy.

The book is great, and amazing value. :)
