Members of the 369th or 373th (Croatian) Infantry Division in conversation with the Chetniks. German-Croatian legionnaire units occasionally cooperated and clashed with the Chetniks, though the cooperation was initiated rather reluctantly. The commander of the 369th Division (Neidholdt) personally (and unsuccessfully) protested on several occasions, asking the superiors to exempt his men (Croats) from cooperating with the Chetniks. The corps commander (Phleps) even threatened the Croats with a firing squad in case they refuse to cooperate. There were real rebellions; one time, an entire battalion refused to obey orders – and three soldiers, as leaders of the rebellion, were sentenced to death (however, after the intervention of the division commander, they were pardoned).

Pripadnici 369. ili 373. (hrvatske) pešadijske divizije u razgovoru sa četnicima. Nemačko-hrvatske legionarske jedinice povremeno su i sarađivale i sukobljavale se sa četnicima, s tim da se saradnja uspostavljala prilično nerado. Komandant 369. divizije (Najdholt) lično je (i bezuspešno) protestovao u više navrata, tražeći od nadređenih da njegovi ljudi (Hrvati) budu oslobođeni saradnje sa četnicima. Komandant korpusa (Fleps) čak je streljanjem pretio Hrvatima u slučaju odbijanja saradnje. Dolazilo je i do pravih pobuna; jednom prilikom je čitav bataljon otkazao poslušnost – i trojica vojnika su, kao vođe pobune, osuđeni na smrt (ali su posle intervencije komandanta divizije ipak pomilovani).
