an "Osprey" from Belgrad

Unread postby iffig » Mon Feb 26, 2007 8:50 pm

A new booklet has been published

"Specijalne jedinice jugoslovenske vosjske u Aprilskom ratu". My educated guess is that it should be translated as : " Special troops of the Yugoslav Army during the April Campaign".
It deals with elite forces of the Yugoslavian army during the short war of 1941 : mountain troops, Cetnick (nothing to see with the royalist resistance fighters then collaborationists; in this context this term denotes assault troops, not unlike the italian Arditi), paratroopers.

The book features photographs, and colour plates. The text is in serbo-croat, that means that it is rather opaque.
I got my copy from a friend who got two copies from a friend who got three copies from a undercover friend somewhere in Serbia ... What I mean, is that it will probably difficult to find a copy from the Smith and Sons or Maison de la Presse around the corner
The booklet features an email address :

Maybe interested members may try to write there.
