  • The Austrian government appeals to American President Woodrow Wilson to call an informal conference to discuss peace terms
  • Allied forces launch a major offensive against the Turks in Palestine and Syria. The Allies break through Turkish lines near the Mediterranean coast, forcing a rapid Turkish retreat and opening the way for an Allied advance on Damascus.
  • French and Serbian troops at Salonika launch the Battle of Dobro Pole, attacking from Albania to the Struma River and driving a wedge between the German and Bulgarian forces. Fighting continues until 18 September; the subsequent defeat of the Central Powers would lead to Bulgaria’s withdrawal from the war. Death Knell for the Central Powers – The Battle of Dobro Pole
