list of awards

Influenced by the Yugoslav Partisan leader Tito, a large communist partisan army was established in Albania. From 1943 onwards, these troops openly engaged Hitler's and Mussolini's armies. In 1944, aided by shipments of British arms, the communists, under their leader Hodzja, succeeded in liberating the country. From then onwards Albania was a satellite state of Yugoslavia.
