Major William Jones: “Draza Mihailovic Assisted Nazis”

(Major William M. Jones was Canadian officer who spent 12 months in the Yugoslav Partisan’s headquarters in Bosnia in World War II. In 1944, he parachuted into Yugoslavia to act as Allied representative to Marshal Josip Broz Tito) TORONTO (20 April 1946, The Windsor Daily Star, p.15)- – Major William Jones, who became an almost legendary war figure after parachuting into Yugoslavia to establish the first Allied contact with Marshal Tito’s [anti-fascist] Yugoslav partisans, arrived home this week after an absence of six years with the Royal Air Force and the British army. In an interview Friday night he described Gen. Draza Mihailovic, Chetnik leader now awaiting trial in Yugoslavia on charges of war crimes, as a “traitor” to Yugoslavia. Mihailovic was recently captured by Tito’s forces which he had fought throughout the war. Major Jones described him as the leader of a band of renegades who collaborated actively with the German and Italian invaders of Yugoslavia. “The Chetniks were always with the enemy,” Major Jones asserted. “They suppressed uprisings against the Germans and they assisted the Nazis to garrison key points in the country. The British supported Mihailovic long after the people in Yugoslavia had branded him as a traitor.”
