During the 1915 France sent to Serbia nine military missions with various tasks. One mission had an assignment to help Serbian defense on the rivers, the other was for several months to help Serbian Red Cross fighting against epidemic typhus, some of them were exploring the possibility of expanding the war operations outside the Serbian borders, etc. Many of these missions remained in Serbia to the end of resistance, even shared the misfortune of retreating with Serbian Army through Albania. Under the influence of difficult circumstances cooperation between Serbia and France during 1915 went through several phases, from the highest level of mutual respect to the misunderstandings and conflict situations caused by different approaches regarding the fate of Serbia and its army after the retreat. After return to France many of the missions' participants published their impressions of fateful events which they had witnessed. Using these valuable memoires and journals, along with official diplomatic documents and reliable literature our aim in this paper is to present 1915 war year seen by the French military missions in Serbia
