Definitions for "salonika"
a port city in northeastern Greece on an inlet of the Aegean Sea; second largest city of Greece
Greek port and centrepiece of the Allies' Balkans strategy during the First World War. Anglo-French forces landed there in October 1915, ostensibly to offer support to the retreating Serbia army. The Salonika Front was widely regarded as a military sideshow in both Britain and Germany and only became important in the last few weeks of the war, when Allied forces defeated the Bulgarian troops in the region, triggering the beginning of the Central Powers' collapse.
