Notably popular and permanently stored in the memory of the Nation
are the military operations in the suburbs of Pleven in 1877, known
as the Pleven Epopee. This was the place where a great number of
military forces were involved in large and very important hostilities.
The allied Russian-Roumanian army reached the number of 130
thousand people and that of the Turkish army - 67 thousand people.
The military operations in the suburbs of Pleven were held into two
stages. The first (July 19 - September 12, 1877) was determined by
the efforts of the Russian army to seize the town striking a front blow
on and directly attacking the Turkish positions. The second stage
(September 13 - December 10, 1877) in which the Russian army was
under the leadership or the military engineer- general Totleben,
marked the beginning of the siege of Pleven and the total blockade
of Osman Pasha army within the town of Pleven. These operations
resulted in the absolute defeat and the unconditional surrender of the
Turkish army. The battle victory in Pleven and the capture of Osman
Pasha army appeared to be of crucial importance for the further
successful outcome of the war.
