      Well I could probably have gone on wikipedia myself, but it's not always the best choice for research...don't get me wrong-I appreciate it, but I was looking for some good accurate sources...

      Thanks anyways though.

        Well mate,WW2 history of Yugoslavia got complicated in last years...

        For years it's was studied that Yugoslavia was betrayed by Croat generals,who sold defence plans to Axis.

        Then,couple of years ago, we discovered than such thing was irrelevant,one defector did gave the plans,however they were changed radically after that.

        However,today we have proof that Mussolini did funded Catholic clergy to work against Serbian King
        It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

        Косово је Србија!
        Never go to war with a country whose national holiday celebrates a defeat in 1389.

            Uh well if you remember anything he told you or any info he has/had, that'd be great if you could share, but don't go to huge lengths to get it just for me!

              Chapter 7- Page 114- enjoy!

              I'll add that the Balkans and Crete should have been the beginning of the campaign to crush the British in the Med and secure that entire region, but Hitler didn't care about it (He only cared in regards to the proximity to Ploesti) all he wanted was to destroy Russia.

                I heard about Ploesti in some World War II books-there was a big bombing raid on the oil dumps there, right?
