The Rise of Tito

ImageYugoslavia (“Land of the South Slavs”) was an artificial nation carved out of the former Astro-Hungarian Empire in 1918 that united disparate groups of ethnic Slavs of different religions. When Germany conquered the country in 1941, the young Yugoslav monarch King Peter II escaped and established his government-in-exile in London. Col. Dragoljub “Draža” Mihailović of the Yugoslav army and a cadre of fellow officers remained behind to form a resistance force, the Chetniks, who had King Peter’s backing. It was this group that initially received supplies from the British and Americans, with Mihailović being referred to in the press as “the Serbian de Gaulle.” But another guerrilla force was at work in Yugoslavia, the communist Partisans led by Josef Broz, whose nom de guerre was Tito.

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.

ImageIn Yugoslavia rival groups of resistance fighters had become a major nuisance to the occupying German forces. Emerging as the likely dominant group were the communist inspired People’s Liberation Army and Partisan Detachments of Yugoslavia, usually simply known as the Partisans. The British had decided to support them and had despatched a Military Mission to provide what support they could to them. They arranged for arms and other supplies to be parachuted in to them.
