The opening section of the study briefly sums up certain aspects of the western allies' military aid to the Yugoslav national liberation movement under the leadership of Josip Broz Tito in 1943-1945. Attention is paid to the less known participation of the Czechoslovak foreign resistance in this aid. At least 2,340 Yugoslavian citizens underwent a basic military training with the Reserve Troops of the Czechoslovak Army in Great Britain in November 1944 - June 1945. They were mostly Slovenian POW's from the Wermacht; most of them were sent to Italy (and from there to their country) before the end of the war.
