On this day
The Byzantine emperor Basil II the Bulgar-Slayer captured the fort of Edessa which was occupied by the Bulgarians.
The Turks arrested and imprisoned the notables of Athens while the city fell into a tragic condition.
After the Greco-Turkish war was declared, a Greek detachment fighting victoriously crossed the frontier near Metsovo and clashed with the Turkish forces stationed there.
Greek units retreated from the Nezero sector in Thessaly and deployed in Deleria (Perivoli).
The garrison of Fort Echinos, north of Xanthe, abandoned its last defenses after a fierce, stubborn and unequal fight lasting four days, withdrawing towards the village of Kentauros.
The Kalapoti Detachment, which was on the Phalakron mountain, at 1010 hours repeated the counterattack against the Kreste height. The height was recaptured and the Germans were driven out to the Kato Neurokopi plain.
Signing of the Capitulation Protocol. The commanding officer of the Field Army Section of Eastern Macedonia Lieutenant Gen¬eral Konstantinos Bakopoulos and the German Lieutenant Gen¬eral Veiel signed at 1400 hours a capitulation protocol in Thessalonica. Lieutenant General Bakopoulos informed his units of the capitulation at 1600 hours and ordered the cessation of hostilities and the gathering of weapons for surrender.
Fort Rupel in Angistron mountain stoutly resisted for four days while German artillery and air force bombarded the fort fiercely. The main German attack effort was directed against the fort itself and had as its objective to force open the Rupel defile. German messengers came at 1700 hours to inform the fort's com¬mander of the capitulation signed at Thessalonica. The comman¬der responded that forts do not surrender unless captured by the enemy. The messengers departed after arranging for another meeting at 0600 hours on the next day.
Fort Paliouriones in eastern Kerkine (Belesh) mountain stubbornly resisted for four days. The German artillery and air force mounted furious attacks, but their persistent efforts were fruit¬less. At 1730 hours German messengers appeared before the fort's commanding officer to inform him of the capitulation that had been signed in Thessalonica. Another meeting was set for 0600 hours of the next day. A ceasefire was agreed upon by both sides during the night hours.
The forts Persek, Babazoras, Partalouska, Perithori and Malianga on the Black mountain (one of the mountains of Vrondou) resisted stoutly for four days, repulsing all German attacks and inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy. Germans that had penetrated during the battle into the corridors of Platoon D in Fort Perithori were killed to the last man. The forts ceased fighting after the capitulation.
Forts Pyramidoeides and Lisse, on the Kato Neurokopi plateau effected a stout resistance for four days. The German forces, though supported by powerful artillery, aircraft and armor, were unable to capture the forts and to force open the Granite pass towards Drama. Both forts ceased fighting after the capitulation.
The forts Karatash and Kale at Angistron mountain resisted bravely for four days and were not captured by the Germans. The capitulation brought an end to the fighting.
(through 10 April) Italian forces set fire to the villages of Agia Euthymia and Vounichora in the Parnassus area, and killed over fifty of their inhabitants (both men and women), in reprisals for the attack against an Italian column.
