    Why not to get drunk: The Battle of Maritsa

    "For something as simple as ego and alcohol, the fate of the Balkans was sealed."

    The Battle of Maritsa, or Battle of Chernomen took place at the Maritsa River near the village of Chernomen (today Ormenio in Greece) on September 27, 1371 between the forces of Ottoman commanders Lala Shahin Pasha and Evrenos and Serbian commanders King Vukašin Mrnjavčević and his brother Despot Jovan Uglješa who also wanted to get revenge after the First Battle of Maritsa.

    The Serbian forces ranged from between 20,000-70,000. The Ottomans? A meager 800.

    What is the reason for such an incredible victory? "Yo! ho! ho!and a bottle of rum!"

    The Serbians had made their camp near the Maritsa. They decided to celebrate their future victory and held a feast. By the morning, the camp largely unguarded and many of the men were drunk.

    The force of the Ottoman leader Lala Shahin entered the camp in the morning. His men took their knives out and began slaughtering their sleeping enemies. In the Massacre that followed the two Serbian leaders were killed. Whoever did not die from the Ottoman blades drowned in the river of Maritsa, in an attempt to escape. After the battle, the Maritsa ran scarlet with blood.
