In the pre-WW2 years his political popularity as well as number of ZBOR followers rose steadily and when the war broke out he joined the Government of National Salvation. He was one of the closest friends and associates of General Milan Nedic .As he was during peaceful time the chairman and spiritual leader of the ZBOR movement, in the same way he lead the Serbian Volunteer Corps (SDK) during the war.



As the fact that Germany was losing the war became more evident and when the Red Army was closing in on Serbia, Ljotic sought to evolve an appropriate strategy. In 1944, he secretly proposed that all Serbian Nationalist forces (Serbian Volunteer Corps, Serbian State Guard and Serbian Chetniks from Serbia, Montenegro and Hercegovina) should evacuate to Slovenia, where (together with Slovenian nationalists) a United nationalist front to combat the communists would be formed. This plan was never realised because of disunity, and Serbian nationalists that escaped communist terror broke up and emigrated elsewhere. On April 23rd, 1945, while on his way to a meeting with nationalist and Church leaders, Dimitrije Ljotic was tragically killed in a car accident in Slovenia, where he was later buried.

Valiant SERBIAN
Serbian regiments heroically rush and all the volunteers are ready
To bring you free mother, Mother loving, Serbia
With Faith in God they are fighting a strong track field ring
Eagerly liberty are you wearing, dear Mother Srbijo
Lives of their own have we given thee, and our mothers, sisters and brothers all
We are now your Mother loving, mother of ours Srbijo

According to Wiki (not much of a source, but at least something :blush:), Ljotic was a collaborator and a Quisling, and his SDK just a part of the several oddly-reunited factions fighting for Adolf down in the Balkans, like the Russian Corps and Mihailovic's tchetniks.

Which was then the main motivation that kept these so-dissimilar armies fighting together? Nationalism? Anti-communism? Nazism / Fascism?

Hello,
very interesting information, does the first photo actually show members of te Volunteer Corps, as they seem to be wearing Adrian helmets.
I thought they had Italian helmets.

Seems that they used both types of helmets. Pre-war Yugoslav Army used Adrian helmets and Germans obviously gave them to use the captured stocks of uniforms.
