Commander-in-Chief of the Yugoslavian Army Forces, and later, Minister of War. He organized and lead resistance forces against the enemy which occupied Yugoslavia from Dec 1941 to Dec 1944. Through the undaunted efforts of his troops, over 500 US Airman were rescued from the Enemy Occupation Forces in Yugoslavia during World War II, and returned safely to friendly control. He was awarded the "Legion of Merit" award by President Harry Truman. The location of his remains are unknown. It was reported that the General was shot by firing squad, then his body dismembered, thrown into a pit, and acid poured on top.
