From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Battle of Saranda took place in southern Albania between the Italians and the Greeks in 1940, during World War II. The Italians had attempted an invasion of Greece (see Greco-Italian War), but they had been thrown back. The battle was won by the Greeks who captured the port of Sarandë (named after the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste). The Greeks occupied part of Albanian Epirus, which was already a matter of territorial dispute between Albania and Greece.

The Greek success in Sarandë later prompted German intervention in the Balkans.
