The treaty of Neuilly was signed by Bulgaria after WW1 has ended, precisely on the 27th of November 1919 in Neuilly Sur-Seine, France. Bulgaria was on Germany's side during the war, therefore it had to pay reparations and land was taken away from it. The three big nations who won the war didn't want to sympathize with the Bulgarians because they were with the enemy: Germany. The aims of the treaty were to make Bulgaria less of a threat, weaken its army, and to readjust its borders. Bulgaria had to pay £100 million as war reparations and all of its western land went to Yugoslavia; Western Thrace was given to Greece and southern Dobruja was returned to Romania. They were also commanded to reduce their army by limiting it to 20,000 men and recognize the existence of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The impact of these terms was that it placed many Bulgarians under the rule of the Greeks, it cut off Bulgaria's access to the Aegean Sea, and reduced Bulgaria's land size and population. This was known as the Second National Catastrophe in Bulgaria. All these effects caused the Bulgarians to be in WW2 and fight with the Nazi Germans to reclaim all land taken away from them by this treaty.
