Warfare in October

Adrianople (1st)  1912–1913  1st Balkan War

As the main Bulgarian army advanced into Thrace through Kirk Kilissa, General Nikola Ivanoff was sent to besiege the powerful fortress
of Adrianople (modern Edirne), held by about 60,000 Turks under Shukri Pasha. The siege was suspended during a failed armistice, but when
fighting resumed, Ivanoff, with Serb reinforcements, took the city by assault (October 1912–26 March 1913).
