      The Macedonians themselves are not asked their opinion. And this is the story of Macedonia in a nutshell........
      In a nutshell.
      In the name of the blood and the sun, the dagger and the gun, Christ protect this soldier, a lion and a Macedonian.

                Here is a part of significance which clears up some of the misconceptions caused by external propaganda:
                In this same year (1934), Mihailoff’s enemies grasped the reigns of government in Sofia, after a putsch engineered by King Boris and several colonels. Mihailoff was forced to flee, and now lives somewhere in Turkey, hidden and almost forgotten, except that his memory is still cursed by the Macedonian peasants who nonetheless revere the memory of the old heroic IMRO of the times of Ilinden. I World War II, Macedonia has again become a battlefield. A few bands of reactionary IMROists joined the Nazi armies as they poured into Yugoslavia, but the bulk of the population did not greet the soldiers under the swastika as liberators. And it is significant that on the day of the Yugoslav surrender, when official Bulgarian hopes of recovering the whole of Macedonia were high, the government papers carried sharp attacks against “those Bolshevist elements of IMRO United who want to split the national unity by renewing their old demagogic slogan of Macedonia for the Macedonians.

                      Such objectivity is rare in texts from that period. A great read.
