21/1/1916 Invaded Montenegro dissolves its army

Montenegro has been invaded by Austro-Hungarian and German forces. The forces of the small Slavic nation have resisted as best they can, even winning some local victories, but the strength of the invading armies means that there can only be one outcome to this campaign.

The Montenegrins attempted to negotiate some kind of separate peace with the Austro-Hungarians, but the only terms offered were ones of complete and unconditional surrender. With the King Nikola and most of the government having fled the country, the remaining memers of the rump government now bow to the inevitable. They have General Janko Vukotich issue an order dissolving the Montenegrin army. Unit commanders are instructed to dismiss their men and send them home. The sun sets on Montenegro’s independence.
