Trivia

In 2015, a Serbian court invalidated Draza Mihailovich's 1946 conviction by a Communist court. The court held that it had been a Communist political show trial that was controlled by the government. The court concluded that Draza Mihailovich had not received a fair trial. See more »

excellent portrayal of Serbian resistance of Nsazis
4 January 2010 | by ajibilianSee all my reviews

I saw the movie just before going into service, little dreaming that I would see Gen. Draja Mihailovich in person. It is an excellent movie, well acted. I volunteered with the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) and parachuted into Mihailovich territory to rescue airmen shot down bombing the oilfields of Ploesti. The mission was called Operation Halyard and is depicted in the book, The Forgotten 500. The movie is an excellent depiction of the Serbs resistance to the German invasion. It has been a long time since I saw the movie and I have forgotten much of it, but, if you like adventure and romance, it has both. Today, there is much controversy surrounding Mihailoich, and this is an excellent source to get one viewpoint.
