Bulgaria declares war on Serbia

On one bank of a river, dismayed French, Russian, Italian, and British soldiers watch 'Bulgaria' drift from its broken Russian leash to the opposite bank where German, Austrian and Turkish soldiers express satisfaction and delight. The 'river' leads, in the distance, to Istanbul. Still held by British tethers (and moneybag) are Greece and Romania.
