Pictures from Yugoslavia 1941-1945: take a look!

Post by G. Trifkovic » 07 Apr 2005 21:56

While not as known as the pictures from bigger and flashier theatres,these pictures reveal some of the atmosphere around the Yugoslav partisans and the way they fought in the war. Presuming they are far more difficult to come across outside of former Yugoslavia,I'm happy to share it with all the members of the forum,especially with those of non-ex-Yu origin.

FIrst six photos are from "Drugi svjetski rat",Grupa autora:
