The guerrilla war in Yugoslavia, which lasted from 22 June 1941 to May 1945 was more extensive and picked up more victims than they took the war in the Soviet Union from June 22 to July 1944, mainly in Belarus. Communist partisans led by Tito, except for the German army, they had to contend with Italian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and the military NDH and the Chetniks and dozens of other insignificant collaborationist militia and groups. The war in Yugoslavia was unique. In this war, they made war with the invaders, nationalist, collaborators, and allies of the Axis against the Partisans. At the same time, it was a civil war, revolution, and war of appeasement.
