A hero of the Balkan Wars and World War One, specialized in diplomacy and intelligence, he was a professor of Strategy and Tactics at the Military Academy in Belgrade in the 1930’s. On the eve of World War Two he was the leading expert of guerrilla warfare in the Balkans. On April 6th, 1941, the Nazis attacked the Kingdom of Yugoslavia which was crushed after 12 days. Mihailovic, promoted to Army General by the Yugoslavian government in exile in London, raised the first and largest guerrilla force in Europe.
He was considered by Western military experts as the second greatest guerrilla leader in world History.
Howether, the Communist party used the chaos of war to form their paramilitary force, backed by Stalin, in order to seize power in Yugoslavia. In 1943, the Western allies betray Mihailovic and start to support Tito’s Yugoslav Communists in order to please Stalin.
The Communists seize power in 1945, capture General Mihailovic in March 1946, prosecute him in a stalinistic-style trial and execute him on a still unknown location on July, 17th 1946.
