Elevation 1050 (Кота 1050, Höhe 1050, Hill 1050, Quota 1050) was an important strategic position on the Macedonian front during the First World War.
After the conquest of the peak Kajmakcalan by the Entente forces in late September 1916, the fighting has moved near the town of Bitola and Crna Reka (Black River). Allied armies entered Bitola on November 19, 1916 after which the Central Powers retreated to the mountains around Bitola, from where the city was bombarded for a period of almost two years.

The German army realized that the loss of Elevation 1050, would put into question the defense of all their positions in the bow of the Crna Reka and would open the road for conquest of Central Macedonia, so it put a great effort in its defense. Both warring sides paid great attention to this location and a number of soldiers gave their lives on this area.
