Groups that simultaneously fought both Allied and Axis forces

Post by Outlier » 08 Aug 2022 14:21

Greetings folks. WW2 history is often simplified into "Axis versus Allies", but the reality wasn't always as clear-cut. Can we use this thread to gather a list of groups who were simultaneously opposing at least one Axis and one Allied force? Please feel free to share examples of such groups that you know of.

As an example, the right-wing Polish resistance group "NSZ" was simultaneously hostile to both German occupation forces (Axis) and local communist partisans (Allied, Soviet-backed)

To quote Civil War in Poland 1942-1948 by A. Prazmowska:

"Like all underground organizations in Warsaw, the NSZ had joined in fighting during the uprising and in most cases NSZ fighters had been incorporated into AK units ... The most prominent of the surviving NSZ units was the Świętokrzyska Brigade in the Kielce district. There it took action against all known communists and fought against AL units."
