On the same page, Sarah Helm writes from Zagreb that the "Croat fighters despise the English and the French" ("Coach tour fails to hide the ugly truth"). She quotes a young soldier: "You are on the side of the Serbs. We know that from the Second World War. We can forgive but we will not forget." This is a more correct picture than the one painted by Marcus Tanner. Croatia declared war on Britain, sent troops to fight Soviets at Stalingrad and wholeheartedly collaborated with Nazis in Yugoslavia.
