Draza-Mihailovic

The history of criminal justice is filled with innocent people condemned to death as well as to lesser sentence. The court of history is no less tainted with stories of unjust condemnation.

The war against Nazi German aggression in Yugoslavia was fought by two armies. Both the communist Partisans, headed by Josip Broz Tito and the royalists, headed by Draza Mihailovic fought the Nazis. Ultimately, it was the communists who controlled the historical narrative. Tito was lauded as a hero, and Draza Mihailovic was denounced as a Nazi collaborator and executed at the end of the war.

With the dissolution of Yugoslavia, the defenders of Draza Mihailovic are having their day in court. The following documentary challenges a verdict of condemnation issued against a man many believe to be a hero. There are annoying gaps in the subtitles, but it is nevertheless a side of World War Two history that has been unfairly suppressed and deserves to be heard.

Chetniks! The Fighting Guerrillas is a Hollywood film from World War II that treats the Chetniks with respect.
