Omladinski borac: list ujedinjenog saveza antifašističke omladine Hrvatske [Young fighter: journal of the united alliance of anti-fascist youth of Croatia], vol. II, no. 14.

Zagreb: Drz̆avni Izvještajni i Promičbeni Ured, 1942. Octavo (20.3 × 15.5 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers illustrated from an original linocut; 40 pp. of mimeographed typescript and six drawings and vignettes to rectos and versos. Very good.

Single issue of a scarce periodical issued by young Yugoslav partisan fighters in Croatia, which served as one of the main periodicals issued by the National Liberation Army, or Partisans. The place of publication is not indicated, but the record of Zagreb Library suggests Zagreb or environs as a likely place of publication. The journal contains essays, resolutions, reports on the first conference of anti-fascist youth fighter organizations in Croatia, as well as songs and poems. With six mimeographed drawings reproduced in the text, including one showing a young fighter loading artillery.

As of December 2020, KVK and OCLC do not locate any copies of this issue outside former Yugoslavia. We only find scattered later issues (for 1944-1945) at the British Library.
