Movie is about Yugoslavian history in time of WWII
17 July 2006 | by cliperSee all my reviews

Oh dear god. What Chehoslovakia!!?? Movie is about Yugoslavian history. I must first find him to tell something more about movie since I haven't look him. If you want to know more about Draza Mihajlovic the lieder of Serbian old army (by the way, they fight with Germans against Tito and partisans) go and search internet, You will learn much. Till the day now in Serbia is big 'talking' about who he was. Traitor or Hero. The big sorrow fact of this kind of Yugoslavian history is that it was civil war against Draza army and partisans in the same time when WWII had played on this territory. Imagine this. Family with two brothers, one brother go to Tito army, other go to Draza army. And they becomes enemies!?
