The Balkans Campaign, but with a Yugoslav/Greek victory.
In October 1940, Benito Mussolini of Italy was jealous of Hitler's successes. He decided to invade Greece from nearby Albania, which was essentially a puppet of theirs. His troops attacked, only to be pushed back by the Greek Army into the southern regions of Albania. Mussolini asked the frustrated Hitler for help, who agreed, and deployed the 9th Army, with elements of the 12th Army. They attacked in March 1941, from southern Bulgaria, and captured several northern parts of Greece. There, they set up a fascist puppet government known as the Hellenic State, which quickly rose up an army of Greeks to fight for the Axis. The Bulgarian 5th Army also attacked.
