And the last (for the time being) but not the least: commanders with maps; destroyed bridge over Djurdjevica Tara river; partisans of the 29th Herzegovina Divison on Ivan mountain...

Yes interesting pics.

The Liberator pic is strongly enhanced....wonder why ? Propaganda ?

Propellers are partially invisible and not a scratch in the plane..looking at the terrain there shouldn't have been a change of survival in that crashlanding.

I knew you'd ask ;) No,unforrtunately not.Only pics of collaborators you can have from these books are communists/partisan propaganda. Say,if you see a chetnik,he can only be posing with Germans or standing over his victim-so,I didn't want it scanned (not saying the photos are false or something)...

Cheers,

Could be,but I take it you can read cyrilc-caption under the pic says 29th herzegovina (yes,I wrote 26th at first...) division. What's your source?

What are the odds of this being a fake picture? The Liberator looks very good in shape, and almost no detail is visible. it seems it is laying in a ditch so it should at least have some curves and broken windshields etc...

"Povijest Osmog dalmatinskog korpusa Narodnooslobodilačke vojske Hrvatske : 1943-1945" autor Nikola Anić.
It is written in his unique style("..good old mr.Anić..") but with many photos and descriptions,including the one you previously posted. Ciao!

Port engine prop is not even bent...altough it is feathered as it should be. Terrain looks wey weird and plants suspiciously strange. I am sure a B-24 is a good flier when belly empty and exhausted all fuel, but still...those airmen were some lucky campers. :)
