Summary/Abstract: The cult of the General Mihailović created during the Second World War was not proportional to his real role in the war. It was created by the Western Allies and the Royal Government in exile. After the war, when Mihailović was caught and executed in 1946.his cult has been politically functionalised. In the contemporary approach to the traditions of the Second World War, the cult of Draža Mihailović should be viewed in the context of his neglecting of the pragmatic side of the politics, his underestimating of the international position and surrounding, his static military strategy, undetermined attitude to Yugoslavia, as well as in the context of the collaboration of his commanders and units with the occupier.
