    Aleksa Dundić (1890s – July 8, 1920) was a Croatian communist, a prominent participant in Russia's October Revolution. A popular character in Russian literature (celebrated for his riding skills and courage), Dundić was honoured with the Order of the Red Banner. In 1958, a joint Yugoslav-Soviet film Aleksa Dundić was directed by Leonid Lukov (in this film he is presented wrongly as ethnic Serb instead as an ethnic Croat).
    His birth date has been claimed as April 13, 1896 or August 12, 1897. His birthplace has been given as Grabovac, near Šestanovac in Dalmatia, Austrian Empire (now Croatia). According to most historians, he was born into an ethnic Croat peasant family.
    In 1914 he was recruited as a private in the Austro-Hungarian Army. During the First World War in May 1916, Dundić was taken prisoner by Russian troops near Lutsk. He volunteered to join the First Division of the Serbian Volunteer Corps in Russia. From the mid-1917 he was a member of the Red Guard (presumably in Odessa). In March, 1918, he headed a guerrilla squad in the region of Bahmut (now Artemovsk) that later joined the Morozov-Donetsk division, which retreated together with the army of K.E. Voroshilov towards Tsaritsyn in June 1918. He participated in the defence of Tsaritsyn as a member of an international battalion, then with cavalry brigades of Kryuchkovsky and Bulatkin. From 1919, he served in the Special Don Caucasus Division of Semyon Budyonny (later in the cavalry corps and the First Mounted Army). He was deputy regiment commander, special aide to Semyon Budyonny, commander of mounted division at the headquarters of the First Mounted Army. Dundić took part in numerous battles and was wounded several times.
    The legendary courage of Dundić brought him ardent love and popularity among Budyonny's troops. From June 1919 he was the deputy commander of the 36th regiment of the 6th cavalry division. He was killed on 8 July, 1920 in battle in Rovno, Ukraine. He was awarded the Order of the Red Banner.
    Hi is a close relative to one of the members of croatian musician band Trio Gušti :D

    Дундићево порекло је нејасно. Постоје два мишљења о његовом пореклу. По првом Алекса Дундић пореклом Хрват из Грабовца чије је право име Томо Дундић, док је је по другом веровању он Србин из Косјерића чије је право име Милутин Чолић.

    This is from Serbian Wiki; God knows who and from where was even Tito and many of those revolutionaries (remember, they had no homeland and church, and only obeyed to court of their party).

    I agree with this part that they obeyed only the party and that they were internationals, but Tito said for self that he is Croat, and that is well know, so he did not have need all the time to explain that, his ethnicity. These are his words. Dundić ethnicity is also well know, he is Croat from Dalmatian hinterland. Books of born children and other things clearly present him as Croat. Maybe later he is wrongly presented as Serb because he joined Serbian volunteer division in Russia. Do you know anything about this Milutin, and why is he connected with Dundić? I did not find anything useful

    I don't think the word "hero" is suitable for him.

    For Soviet historiography he is consider as Hero of October Revolution. His name is on the wall of heroes of october revolution. That is their point of view, our point of view, can be or not the same. This is why I said Soviet historiography :)
