Genocide and Resistance in Hitler’s Bosnia: The Partisans and the Chetniks, 1941–1943

Marko Attila Hoare


This volume is a study of revolution, genocide and national identity in Bosnia-Hercegovina during World War II. It explains the civil war between two rival guerrilla movements — the Partisans and the Chetniks — both in terms of long-term socio-economic and cultural fissures in Bosnia-Hercegovina, and in terms of short-term differences in policy and ideology. A chronological narrative history of the Bosnian Partisan movement allows the reader to understand how it evolved, as it first provoked the emergence of its Chetnik rival, and was then forced to adapt under pressure from the latter.

Keywords: revolution, genocide national identity, Bosnia-Hercegovina, World War II, civil war, guerrilla movements, Partisans, Chetniks, socio-economic, policy
