NATIONAL RESISTANCE 1944-1955

After the formation of the National Independent Bloc – Bloku Kombetar Independent (BKI), in 1946, major events began to occur in the fight to free the homeland.

1947 – Exploratory Mission Plan

In 1948 the Foreign Branch ‘P’ of the CIA was approached by the Italian Navy Intelligence, who were supporters of the BKI, and presented with a proposal for the mounting of a joint operation in Albania.

The BKI was the first organization in exile to participate in the initial operations to infiltrate Albania, in support of the nationalists and their fight against the communist regime of Enver Hoxha.
