Summary/Abstract: In the summer of 1907, the Inner Macedonian-Odrin Revolutionary Organization (IMORO) undertook a large-scale rebels’ action in Macedonia to expel Serbian and Greek troops from the area. The most significant manifestation of this action was the battle at Nozhot Peak, Prilep region, which ended with a heavy defeat for the Bulgarian bands. The main focus of the article is the fact that the rebels’ action was carried out thanks to the funds of the Bulgarian government, which provided IMORO with an impressive amount of weapons and ammunition. The failure was due both to faults in the overall strategic plan and to the vigorous resistance of Serbia, which coordinated its activities with the Ottoman Empire at various levels. After the defeat at Nozhot Peak, the IMORO campaign weakened significantly, but the continued dispatch of bands and weapons aided the Bulgarian population in Macedonia in its fight against foreign armed propaganda.
