ImageEven though the strategies of ex-Yugoslavia's army are often ridiculed and mocked, the most powerful army in the history of mankind thinks differently. They even study it thoroughly in order to use it against ISIS. It is no secret that the brilliant strategies of ex-Yugoslavia’s army during the World War two were thoroughly studied in the decades to follow, by both our and foreign military strategists.

It is also well know that these strategies are often ridiculed and mocked, that the moves like blowing up the Neretva bridge are attributed to panic and so on.

It is often spoken of how the dying of Serbian youth at Sremski front was unnecessary, that the Germans would eventually back down on their own, even though they held those positions at all costs which make these sayings contradictory.

Anyway, the idea of Germans leaving on their own was the Chetniks’ logic during the war, which explains their inactivity against the occupying forces.

The present situation in the world is now completely different, looking back on the events in Yugoslavia during the Second World war. The proof of that is today’s studies of partisans’ strategies in order to beat the extremists’ movements in both present and future.

American author Jason M. Breneman published in 2012 a book called ”Asymmetric Warfare: An Analysis of Tito’s Yugoslavian Partisan Military Strategy During World War II and Lessons That Will Help America Fight Al-Qaeda’‘, which is today more popular then ever due to the fighting against the ISIS.

He claims that the understanding of guerrilla fighting is the key element in the war against the terrorism, especially the understanding of the asymmetric warfare, which was practiced by Tito’s partisans.

Breneman believes that the analysis of Tito’s tactics will prove useful because the America’s enemies use that tactics instead if classic one.

– Until the middle of 1943, partisan resistance to the Germans grew from mere nuisance to an important factor in the general situation. In many parts of occupied Europe the enemy suffered heavy casualties from partisans which they could not allow. The heaviest casualties were in Yugoslavia – said other historian, a British called Basil Davidson.

During the struggle our partisans successfully liberated and survived six enemy offensives, constantly increasing their numbers and expanding the territory and eventually, with the help of the Russian army, liberated the whole country.
