Anti-Partisan Operations in WW2 Croatia
Defensive Tactics and Defeat
175 pages; 20 chapters and 8 appendices
The war of the small nation of Croatia against huge communist partisan enemies
has not yet been told in the detail that it deserves. The reason for that is that most
military writers are biased against Germany and Croatia, because those writers
are closet reds intent on glorifying communist military exploits. Anti-Partisan
Operations in WW2 Croatia refuses to join that herd of unthinking
pro-communist Western "thinkocrats." The e-book Anti-Partisan Operations in
WW2 Croatia, based on an excellent German report of what happened there, has
been improved by the familiar QuikManeuvers.com editorial work of our own
veteran soldiers and espionage operatives. As a result, Anti-Partisan Operations
in WW2 Croatia has unique utility to professional soldiers and history buffs alike.
Anti-Partisan Operations in WW2 Croatia is unique in several other ways too.
For example, Anti-Partisan Operations in WW2 Croatia grimly describes the
exaggerated influence on the defensive in Croatia and the folly of that, as well as
amateurish Axis leadership mistakes. Yet this small book, avoiding the usual
Western claptrap of devoting dozens of pages to ideological hate-propaganda
against Hitler, Germany and Axis allies, is militarily direct and to the point. It is a
lesson in objective brevity blended with highly useful, expert combat lessons. Those
who read Anti-Partisan Operations in WW2 Croatia will be gratified by its
user-friendly explanations and pleased to learn and relearn the grim consequences
of depending too much upon defense.
"The Croatian population at first had welcomed German intervention, since they expected from them more effective
protection than that demonstrated by the terribly corrupt and inferior Italians against the increasing communist power.
The more evident it became that the initiative was passing to the partisans, in consequence of astounding local German
leadership weakness, the greater were the numbers of Croats that went over to the partisans hoping to survive partisan
revenge in the long run. In the summer of 1944, cunning university students from Zagreb, for example, served for months
in nearby partisan territory while allegedly spending the vacation with country relatives. The desire to seek favor with the
Tito communists against the event of a German defeat, gradually seized the entire upper strata of the Croatian
bourgeoisie, whose guiding principle was to avert or at least to limit the destruction of Croatian property. It is amazing that
they desperately trusted the communists not to murder them when they were disarmed and helpless. History proved that
they were wrong to forget that the middle class is the ultimate victim of communism."
