“The Forest Brothers”

Many thanks to the excellent MDL for this tip. (It was also cited, today, at WRSA in another form.)

“NATO Reenacts Baltic Guerrilla War”: a synopsis of the extensive anti-Soviet resistance movements in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania that fought on into the 1950s, and in a few cases even beyond.

The nice, slick NATO-produced video (!) is there, and amplifying text are both worth your time. The Forest Brothers, and the civilians who supported them, were real patriots. Perhaps we can learn from their example.

 

About vmijpp

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.
