Needs Sourcing[edit]

The following passage was removed:

"According to Dr. Marko Hoare, "On other occasions, however, Mihailović's Chetniks rescued German airmen and handed them over safely to the German armed forces... The Americans, with a weaker intelligence presence in the Balkans than the British, were less in touch with the realities of the Yugoslav civil war. They were consequently less than enthusiastic about British abandonment of the anti-Communist Mihailović, and more reserved toward the Partisans.""

A claim of this sort should be properly footnoted, with the volume and page number, like most other assertions in this article. This helps with quality control, weeding out wild claims. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.31.36.112 (talk) 19:40, 7 November 2013 (UTC)


Infobox image[edit]

I have reverted the change of image in the infobox twice now, on the basis that the photograph of DM with the beard is contemporary with the period for which he is most notable. An IP editor continues to change it back without even an edit summary or bringing the discussion here under WP:BRD, will report this for edit warring if it occurs again. Peacemaker67 (talk) 21:26, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

The reversion to a non-contemporary portrait has recurred and has again been reverted. For editors that consider that the younger (unbearded) portrait is more appropriate, it is clear from the several reversions of the image that the matter is contested by at least two involved editors. Please discuss here to achieve consensus. Thanks, Peacemaker67 (talk) 22:17, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Philip Cohen's 'Serbia's Secret War[edit]

According to RSN discussion Philip Cohen's 'Serbia's Secret War is not reliable source. I removed it from the list of the sources.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 08:03, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

according to one editor, (User:Fifelfoo). That is not consensus. RSN states "While we attempt to offer a second opinion, and the consensus of several editors can generally be relied upon, answers are not official policy". There was no consensus of several editors, and it certainly isn't official policy. Your tagging of this whole article on the basis of Cohen, whose reliability you personally dispute, is just disruptive and blatant POV warring. Continuation of this approach beyond the currently affected article (Djurisic) where you don't have a consensus, will be reported as disruption. Peacemaker67 (talk) 09:02, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

German Medal[edit]

Some web sites state that Draza got a gold anti-partisan medal from the Germans. Can this be checked? I would like to either put it in the article as a fact or list it as a discredited rumour. 2.28.140.201 (talk) 03:16, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
