The Tito Escort Battalion was the personal protection unit of the Yugoslav Partisans leader Josip Broz Tito, responsible for his personal safety during World War II in Yugoslavia. It accompanied Tito throughout Yugoslavia during the war, suffering significant casualties and fighting pitched battles at times. Its most notable engagements were during the Axis Case Black offensive in south–eastern Bosnia in mid–1943, and in holding off the airborne assault of the German 500th SS Parachute Battalion during Operation Rösselsprung in mid–1944.
