Resistance war in Yugoslavia[edit]

..or Yugoslav resistance war? How's that for an NDESC title? The term "resistance war" can be seen as denoting both the resistance against the occupation and the war between resistance movements, which pretty much catches the whole original scope; also ofc removing all the aforementioned unaddressed problems caused by the (essentially-non-consensus!) inclusion of the Invasion (such as WP:OVERLAP with Invasion of Yugoslavia, etc.. not to repeat myself). -- Director (talk) 13:55, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Didn't we just have an RM? N-HH talk/edits 20:31, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Not really; nor is this an RM. I think we're all grown men capable of expressing our opinion without formal framework. Imo a formal RM is only necessary if us "regulars" are in deadlock, i.e. if there's no consensus. That's the point of this thread.
If acceptable to all parties, this could be an elegant solution to the problems we're facing..? Yugoslav resistance war is imo a simple, elegant, and accurate NDESC title that does not conflate the guerrilla conflict with the Balkans Campaign six months prior. It doesn't simply denote "all conflicts in this area", but restores focus on a specific conflict that was the subject of this article since its inception.
Throughout this conflict, even in its conventional warfare phase later on, Yugoslav forces can still be described as the "resistance" (whereas "guerrilla war" loses applicability). The war between the resistance and the occupation can be described as a "resistance war" in the sense that it was a war of resistance, one that was caused by, and involved, the Yugoslav resistance. The conflict between Chetniks and Partisans can also be described as a "resistance war" in the sense that its a war between resistance movements (which the Chetniks formally remained, in spite of collaboration).
The term can be seen to work both ways, can be applied to all phases, and places the Invasion apart from the resistance struggle (which really is a separate, conflict). That's why I like it. Please let me know if you do. -- Director (talk) 08:13, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Guess not. Formal framework it is, then. -- Director (talk) 09:37, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
