SERBIA PREPARING WW2 EPIC MOVIE OPERATION HALYARD ON THE BIGGEST RESCUE OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN AIRFORCES!

   OPERATION HALYARD MOVIE 
WHEN SERBS SAVED OVER 500 US PILOTS FROM NAZI HANDS
Here is a story you probably have never heard of even though you probably should have if you are an American! Back at the end of World War 2 Serbs saved more than 500 American and Allied pilots in the biggest individual rescue mission in the history of air forces. Serbian National
The film is expected sometime in 2023, series as well
Broadcaster is currently preparing a massive war epic on it titled OPERATION HALYARD and simultaneously a mini TV series titled AIR BRIDGE. Beside a big number of Serbian actors, the cast will also include Carl Wharton, Nikola Kent, Stephen Moore, Adam Davenport and Jadran Malkovich under the helm of director Radosh Bajich
 
  OPERATION HALYARD DRAMA
is inspired by the largest single rescue operation in the history of world aviation of about 508 American and other Allied pilots behind enemy lines, which took place at an improvised airport in the village of Pranjani at the foot
The film follows a father who has to send both his sons to war
of Serbian mountain Suvobor with the logistical support of the Yugoslav Royal Army in 1944 known by the code name "Operation Halyard".The story, based on historical facts, has members of the Jović family as its main protagonists.
Air Bridge TV series version will air in six episodes
Two brothers from that family are in the conflicting armies, Mirko is in the Chetniks and Sreten is in the partisans. Their father is trying to protect his youngest son from joining any army. The story of Halyard is actually an apotheosis of heroism, friendship, charity, nobility and patriotism.

 DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
The aim of the action was the evacuation of Allied airmen shot down over the Nazi occupied kingdom of Yugoslavia. It was the largest rescue operation of American Airmen in history with grand total of 432 U.S. and 80 Allied personnel airlifted during the heroic mission during which Serbian fighters
The situation in Nazi occupied Yugoslavia was very complicated as Chetniks, the members of Serbian Royal Army were in conflict with Tito's communist Partisans, even though both fought against the Nazis
and ordinary people risked their lives for the lives of pilots in the middle of the Nazi infested land. The rescued pilots were bombing Nazi targets over South East Europe, especially oil fields and refineries. Since almost half of their
More than one hundred actors have taken part in the production
aircrafts were shot down during these missions, hundreds of pilots ended up in Serbia. The Germans offered cash to the local Serbian population for the capture of Allied airmen, but Serbian peasants accepted the airmen into their homes, risking the wrath of the Nazis, and fed them for months without any
The preparations for the shooting took three years, with two more years just for the shooting in two separate rounds
Allied help. Operation Halyard had the purpose of locating and rescuing all these men. It is interesting that the US has 'thanked' Serbia by killing more than 5,000 innocent Serbian people in their bombing air strikes on Serbia which lasted for over three months day and night back in 1999.

    1. It is interesting that they completed the operation without a single casualty among the pilots.

    1. It is, Angie, I still have nightmares when I hear airplanes. I was at my first year of college when they started bombing us, I still remember travelling by train to college while bombs were falling around us. They once dropped a bomb on a train filled with students and workers going home from their factories to their kids, so I never felt safe in a train.

    1. The whole war was scary here in Europe.Especially for my country as we were the only Allied country here surrounded with Nazi collaborators from all sides, literally!

  4. A horrible way for us to show our gratitude :( I love my country, but I am so ashamed at our government's need for constant war. I'm sorry for what our leaders put your countrymen through.

    On an unrelated note, I was on the other end of town today and saw that next weekend they are doing a Serbia Fest, serving up all kinds of Serbian food. I'd love to go but they are having it at the exact same time I'm having a college graduation party for Mariah. But if they do it again next year, I'm keeping that day free!

    1. It was Clinton and that bitch Albright who later on made lucrative contracts for her companies down at Kosovo. I can only imagine how much Clinton got from drug smugglers, human traffickers and terrorists there. Hilary was super thrilled.

      Serbian food is mostly meat and filo pastry pies. But I do love Vojvodinian food. We are all pasta, pasta, pasta and potatoes LOL

    2. Then Jason would love it. If they had any pasta or potatoes on the menu, I'd be walking away with a little extra belly weight, but it would be so worth it!

    3. They probably won't have it over there, as Serbs always neglect Vojvodina, so you'd get just meat and ajvar.

  5. This is something that I would definitely watch. These are stories that we never get to hear over here. Which is sad, because it sounds like something us Americans should know. There are monuments everywhere over here, you would think this deserves a permanent display of appreciation like that as well..
