Mark, nice (but lame) attempt at painting the Serbs as pro-Nazi during 1941-45. Sure, there was a tiny percentage of the Serb population which collaborated...nothing new there geez even among the English there were Pro-Nazi loonies; ie Oswald Mosely

What you fail to note is the 20,000 Bosnian Muslims who fought gleefully in the SS. As a percentage of able bodies Muslims at the time, it is a huge percent. Roughly, Bosnian Muslims served as a higher percentage in the SS than did Americans in all branches of service during WWII.

In Kosovo and Metohija one found a similar story, in certain extremist areas, the Albanian population were zealous pro-Nazi's

In Croatia & Dalmatia, great masses of troops were sent all over Europe helping the master race

But the highest percentage of population devoted to Gross Deutschland was of course in Solvenia whose inhabitants became German citizens.

This stands in great contrast to the participation of Serbs who were murdered by the hundreds of thousands

Your characterisation is a insult to those millions of innocent who perished in the Holocaust

Well, well. I sure must have said some nasty things about the Serbs in my two posts about WWII. DTA responded: "With your smearing of Serbs at all cost, .." and vooch chimed in with "[you are]painting the Serbs as pro-Nazi during 1941-45" plus "Your characterisation is a insult to those millions of innocent who perished in the Holocaust".

Here's a cut and paste of exactly what I said about WWII:

Albania, along with Greece and Serbia, were conquered and occupied by the Axis in WWII. Those were the three countries in the Balkans that were the home of extensive resistance movements. Albania, although a much smaller county and on a much smaller scale, mirrored closely the resistance movement in Yugoslavia. They had anti-Axis nationalists, anti-Axis Royalists, and of course the communist Partisans under Tito-ally and future dictator Hoxha. Similar to the Chetnik-Partisan fights in Serbia, the Albanians did not just fight the Italians and Germans, but often each other.

Just like Serbia with Nedic, the Albanians had a puppet government although they did not have a home-grown fascist movement such as the Serbian "Zbor".

And then I said: Now, DTA, what about these guys: Serbisches Freiwilligen Korps der SS

You can read a little bit more about Serb collaborationist and SS forces here.

DTA: "Nazis took control of SFK when SFK LOST war in Serbia and fled from Partisans and Red Army.

Me: Well done, DTA, you got that exactly right. As the Serbian Volunteer Corps, they were under the control of the Nedic collaborationist government from 1941-1944 and were well known for their hard fighting against the Partisan resistance organizations. Since they were Nazi collaborators it was natural they would flee when the Red Army arrived. So they did so and then continued to fight for the Nazi cause under the direct control of the SS.

OK, Vooch & DTA--you did some name-calling. Now back it up. Use my exact words. Support your positions.

And this is still true.
