Description

Battle for Vukovar, bloodiest battle in Croatia's Homeland War, was 87-day siege of town Vukovar by JNA ( Yugoslav people's army) backed by serbian četnik terrorists. Town was defended by lightly armed volunteers and police for almost 3 months untill it had fallen under attacks from serbian side who had whole army arsenal at their disposal. What's so heroic is that those brave men and women, armed with hunting rifles, assaults rifles and few anti tank weapons, managed to inflicate such heavy losses despite enemy's technological and numerical superiority. Even though the town fell and the battle was lost, strategically - it was great Croatian victory as Serbian moral was crushed and so many Serbs questioned the very reason of agression on Croatia. After the town fell, četnik terrorists with JNA began their slaughterous intents - killing wounded and captured soldiers from the hospital as well as civilians who didn't evacuate earlier in event better known as Ovčara massacre.
