The Battle of Dojran was a battle of the Second Balkan War, fought between the Bulgarian and the Greek army. The battle took place in June 1913.

The Greek armed forces, after the victory at Kilkis-Lachanas, continued their advance north and successfully engaged the Bulgarians at Lake Dojran (Doirani). As a result of their subsequent defeat, the Bulgarian forces retreated further north.

Battle

The Doiran Lake was at the right wing of the Bulgarian line of defense. The 2nd Bulgarian Army was responsible for the defense of this sector.[4] The Bulgarian artillery was for some time successful against the Greek attack.

The Bulgarians evacuated the region and retreated north after several hours of fighting.
