Ignorant piece of propaganda which should be viewed as completely historically inaccurate
1 May 2016 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

People still think this propaganda is historically accurate? Chentics were war criminals who committed many massacres of Croatian and Muslim civilians. They collaborated with Germans, Italians, Serbian nazi puppet government and even Croatian nazi puppet government! Their goal was to restore royal Yugoslavia and ethnically clean greater Serbia in it. I can't believe people still believe Serbian propaganda. This movie was made by Americans who belived lies of exiled Serb king of first Yugoslavia. Later when they met Tito they changed their mind. And I can't believe this is not mentioned in trivia! There is many evidence of their collaboration with axis forces (of course they were just using enemy for their own goal - greter Serbia)
