1st Sisak Partisan Detachment

1st Sisak Partisan Detachment

The 1st Sisak Partisan Detachment (Croatian: "Prvi sisački partizanski odred") was the first armed anti-fascist military unit in Europe.

This first Yugoslav Partisan unit was established in Brezovica forest, near Sisak, Croatia on June 22 1941, the day Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. This launched the resistance against fascism in Croatia and the rest of Yugoslavia.

Janko Bobetko, who 50 years later became one of the most prominent Croatian generals in Croatian War of Independence, was a member of this brigade.
