    Hierzu der original TIME-Text zur Legende Draza Mihailovic:

    Time, May 25, 1942, pages 23, 24 (excerpts, quote

    ...He watches from his mountain walls, and like a thunderbolt he falls. These words, written for an eagle, today are far better fit for one of THE MOST AMAZING COMMANDERS OF WORLD WAR II. He is Yugoslavia's Draja Mihailovich. Ever since Adolf Hitler vaingloriously announced a year ago that he had conquered Yugoslavia, Draja Mihailovic and his 150,000 guerrillas in the mountains south-west of Belgrade have flung the lie in Hitler's teeth. IT HAS BEEN PROBABLY THE GREATEST GUERRILLA OPERATION IN HISTORY... (A long list of achievements follows... and then...)

    (Mihailovic) has already become the great symbol of the unknown thousands of supposedly conquered Europeans who still resist Adolf Hitler... As a legend, Draja Mihailovic will UNQUESTIONABLY live as long as World War II is remembered... The once obscured Balkan officer who was thus far successfully challenged the modern world's greatest conqueror was born in Serbia... He entered Belgrade's Serbian Military Academy at 15. He has been a lifelong soldier, an officer who got his training under fire. He is also PROFOUNDLY A SERB. For those who know Serbs, that fact alone would account for his great-hearted defiance.

    The blood bath and oppression which for centuries has laved the minarets and green poplars of the Balkans has also watered a glowing military spirit in little Serbia - an UNQUESTIONABLE WILL TOWARD FREEDOM.

    In 1389, a date of horror in Serbian minds, the Turks defeated the Serbs on the plain of Kosovo and slaughtered the cream of Serbian manhood. For the next four centuries Turkey bore down on Serbia as hard as Adolf Hitler has done, with such devices as impaling, mutilation and roasting of living Serbs on spits... Yet Serbia continued to resist...
    (End quote)

    (The text continues in glorification of the Serbian struggle for independence from the Turks, brave fight in Balkan wars and World War I. Then the author returns to Mihailovic's biography praising his bravery in Balkan wars, WW I. In 1914 Mihailovic receives the Order of the White Eagle and after participation on the Salonika front the highest decoration Karageorge Star with crossed swords... The text ends with - quote

    Today Draja Mihailovic seems legendary, but he is a legend with a big basis in fact: the fact that that he has kept from five to ten Nazi divisions at a time of fighting to conquer the country which they destroyed twelve long months ago.
