Hristopulos Vasil

Vasil was born in the village Kalevishta, Kostur region in 1912. He was among the first to join the ELAS fighters and he fought bravely and decisively against the German and Italian fascists as well as against their servants.

In DAG he was again among the first to join and took part in many battles on Vich and Gramos and rose to the rank of captain. In 1948 in the great battles on Gramos and in a battle in Gupata, near to Kotel peak, when his unit was attacking the enemy, he threw himself with self sacrifice into the enemy machine gun fire, taking it on himself. The attack was successful but the captain was lost.
