e study tells about the participation of Serbian volunteers from the volunteer Division I in bloody battles in the
autumn of 1916, in Dobrogea. Together with the Romanian army and Russian military corps Serbian volunteers
(nearly 20,000 soldiers), most of them from Banat, showed an exceptional spirit of sacrifice for the fulfilment of
the national ideal and scored unmatched pages of military glory in the common struggle for unity and building
of new national states. In order to fulfill this ideal, Serbian volunteers have made massive human sacrifice, offering
young lives of over 8,500 soldiers and staff on the altar of the homeland. eir memory is honoured with
reverence by the impressive Monument from Medgidia, founded in 1926 by the gesture of gratitude from both
their Royal Majesties Ferdinand of Romania and Alexander of Yugoslavia.
Present study brings details about the campaign, sacrifice and high decoration, of over 900 volunteers and
heroes, based on information stored in the archives in Bucharest and Belgrade.
