When defining this research paper, it is worth to mention that so far not many researches have been made to this regard because of the monographic historiographies, which have misunderstood the historical issues of Albanians during the period of World War II and during the Anti-Fascist National Liberation War. Only in the last twenty years we have seen the Albanian historiography, with the support of a stable and well-established historical factography, strongly opposing a part of the historical literature about the Anti-Fascist War. In this research paper, an aim will be the specification of conditions by which Albanians once again showed their determination in the struggle against dictatorships from the Albanian League of Prizren, the Kaçak movement, The Second League of Prizren, the Anti-Fascist Liberation War until the last UÇK-UCMB war. After the Second League of Prizren ceased to exist, the indispensable necessity for Albanian nationalism to act was born, and it acted under the name of Albanian National Democratic Organization (Movement). The decisions and actions made by Albanian National Democratic Organization constitute the main topic of this research paper.

Keywords: Albanian Nationalism, League of Prizren, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, World War II
