it would make relief to russia. there was railroad from salonika to serbian front. it was much harder to start campaign with afibious action when you do not have front that is formed. in serbia front was already formed, and serbian forces have pushed austro hungarians from their original positions although they were inferior in manpower and equipment. serbian army was smaler than the size of ally troops deployed on galliopli.
