Battle of Empires: 1914-1918 - Honor of the Empire is the first entry in the popular WW1 wargame series Battle of Empires. Play through a campaign set in the mountains of Albania, one of the last places standing against the Ottoman Empire. The game starts with a series of battles between the Serbian army and the Turkish army near the Albanian capital Durres. After a victorious campaign in Smyrna (1914), the Turks marched south into Albania in 1915. The Albanians suffered a crushing defeat and were forced to capitulate in Durres in November 1916. The end of the battle was marked by fierce negotiations between the Serbian and Turkish commissioners. The results of negotiations were embodied in the new Treaty of London. Turkey lost most of its possessions in the Balkans, while Serbia gained most of Kosovo and Macedonia.
The Second Balkan War broke out when the League attacked the Ottoman Empire on 10 October 1912 and ended seven months later with the Treaty of London. After five centuries, the Ottoman Empire lost virtually all of its possessions in the Balkans. Bulgaria was dissatisfied over the division of the spoils in Macedonia, made in secret by its former allies, Serbia and Greece. Bulgaria attacked to force them out of Macedonia, beginning the Second Balkan War. The Serbian and Greek armies repulsed the Bulgarian offensive and counter-attacked into Bulgaria, while Romania and the Ottoman Empire also attacked Bulgaria and gained (or regained) territory. In the resulting Treaty of Bucharest, Bulgaria lost most of the territories it had gained in the First Balkan War.
