    Our leaders told us we had

    This sentence is from my short story. My narrator talks about the past events. I am not sure if it sounds natural. Would you please take a look at it and correct my mistakes?

    Our leaders told us we had only two choices: either we would become second-class citizens and face extermination like in the Second World War, or we had to create our own little state, which would be protecting us from the Croatian nationalists.

    My suggested changes (deletions) are above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
