Parleying with the Devil
Prisoner Exchange in Yugoslavia, 19411945
Parleying with the Devil is the first comprehensive analysis of prisoner exchanges and the attendant contacts between the German occupation authorities and the Yugoslav Partisans. Trifković argues that prisoner exchange had a decisive influence on prisoner of war policies on both sides and helped reduce the levels of violence for which this theater of war became infamous. Parleying with the Devil reveals that these points of contact, contrary to some claims, did not lead to collusion between these two parties against other Yugoslav factions or the Western Allies.
About the Authors
"Trifković's Parleying with the Devil is a unique and monumental contribution to the literature on prisoners of war in the Second World War. It is exhaustively researched from sources in multiple languages, offering the only comprehensive treatment of the topic. This should be the standard work on the subject for the foreseeable future."—Derek R. Mallett, author of Hitler's Generals in America: Nazi POWs and Allied Military Intelligence
