Zdravo to everyone and welcome to my page! My nickname here is SRB-HawkEye-. Not much history behind it, I picked it randomly and I liked it. About me: I live in the greatest country on Balkan- Serbia, a beautiful country with rich history! I'm student and I'm studying about computers, robotics and electronics - I'm on a department that actually includes all of those courses. I have several hobbies, but history, languages and games are the hobbies that I enjoy really much. It really gets me relaxed and, BTW, I'm not a geek! :) About modding, after three years on this site I have learn so much about this sphere of gaming. I specialized myself in making camouflage textures. I made a small collection which I am keeping in my personal group called SRB-HawkEye-'s Mental Store. Unfortunately, I haven't started to work on any of the projects, although I have loads of great ideas.

Bulgaria won this war against Serbia.
In 1913, Bulgaria was at war with Serbia in Second Balkan War; In 1914, during The Great War, was also on the opposite side (Serbia won in both wars). In 1937, Serbia and Bulgaria signed the "Pact of eternal friendship", which they broke in 1941, during the Second World War, occupying the southern part of Serbia.
From the end of WW2 till today, we haven't fought in any of the wars. It looks that the time of peace have started and the pact is still present ! =)

Even at war countries used to be chivalrous. Few are nowadays, those virtues have been lost by the majority of them. A truly honourable act indeed, never knew about it before reading this.

Didn't knew about this. But still I don't understand why Milan Obrenovic attacked them without any good reasons, its like if he was puppet to A-H empire.
About humanity, I remember the story that during WWI on orthodox Easter, Serbian and Bulgarian troops got out of their trenches to congratulate each other, even exchange supplies. Sad thin is their commanders on both sides didn't like this and started shelling their own troops for not following orders...

Between 1884 and 1885 Serbia was at war with Bulgaria, which at that time didn't have medical corps so there was no one to take care of or provide medical assistance to the wounded soldiers.

The international Red Cross prepared the aid convoys with supplies ready to be transported to Bulgaria, but the only way to transport it was across Serbia and the battle field.

Than something occurred that was not recorded in the world history: at the request of the Austrian Red Cross, the Serbian government granted the military command to stop the war for one day and opened the front line for the Red Cross to transport the aid from Vienna to Sofia in Bulgaria. Serbia did more than that: medications, beds and blankets from their own supplies were added to existing aid and Bulgarian forces were given everything they needed to open a hospital.

That way Serbia gave its own supplies to the enemy with whom it was at war. In memory of this unselfish act the International Red Cross awarded Serbia with recognition for humanity. In memory of this unselfish act, a board with the inscription "Be as humane as Serbia was in 1885" is set in the building of the International Red Cross in Geneva.
