David Martin, a distinguished journalist, political analyst and staff member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, first published his book ALLY BETRAYED in 1946. Having devoted his life to uncovering the truth and to defending Mihailovich, Martin’s book asks the crucial questions:
1. Why did the Allied press which had made a great hero of Mihailovich as a resister of Axis invaders of Yugoslavia begin to play him down after 1942?
2. What was Tito’s past? And where was the radio station located that heralded his appearance in Yugoslavia?
3. What decision was reached at Teheran with respect to Tito and Mihailovich?
4. How was the ALLIED military intelligence about Yugoslavia falsified?
5. Why did Churchill say of Yugoslavia, “I was deceived and badly informed.”
David Martin was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1914. Before World War II, he wrote on Canadian affairs for Current History, The Nation, The New Republic, the New Leader, and other journals. He joined the Canadian Air Force in October 1942, became a pilot, and flew on the Burmese frontier. He was honorably discharged in 1946.
With a Foreword by Dame Rebecca West, one of Mihailovich’s most avid supporters.
