The Home Guard Oath on April 20, 1944
The author discusses the oath which the Slovene Home Guards took in April 1944, promising to fight together with the Nazis against communists and their collaborators, against the Liberation Front therefore, and not against the English and the American. He tries to establish whether this was also an oath of allegiance to Hitler.
