Gen. Draza Mihailovic Admits Collaboratingwith Nazis
The following newspaper article was published by
Schenectady Gazette
 on
15 June 1946
, but the article was dated 14 June 1946 (newspaper page 1 and 7)
BELGRADE Gen. Draza Mihailovic admitted wearily today under questioning by the prosecution that he had collaborated personally with the enemy [Nazis] while commanding hisChetnik troops in Yugoslavia.Earlier he had testified that he had been promised United States support exclusively for hismovement by the head of the American mission to his Chetniks headquarters.The bearded Chetnik leader, on trial before a Yugoslav military court on charges of bothcollaboration and treason, was confronted with a handwritten letter in which he had said “theItalians helped us well.” He admitted the letter was genuine. It instructed Chetnik units toreceive arms from the Italians.“What do you call this?” demanded the prosecutor after reading the letter.“Intrigue,” replied Mihailovich. [*definition of 'intrigue' = A secret or underhand scheme; a plot.]“Is that collaboration?” the prosecutor asked.“Yes,” was the reply.“Is that your collaboration?” the prosecutor pressed further.“Yes,” Mihailovic answered.Obviously tired from his continual appearance on the stand since Tuesday, Mihailovich hadtestified also that he had told the British that he had enough of being a “fill-gap man inEurope,” and that it was “up to us to tend towards the Soviet Union.”He said the Yugoslav government in London had intervened with the admonition “look westward” and he had accepted it.Clad in U.S. army pants and shoes and a nondescript coat, he said he had been given a promiseof exclusive United States support by Col. Robert H. McDowell, head of the American missionto Chetnik headquarters in 1944.
