The author analyses the experience of war based on the journal entries by Mijo Čipor, a peasant from Lonja who participated in WWI practically from its first until its last day as a private in 27th Home Guard Regiment from Sisak. Although he wrote in his journal nearly the entire time, only one booklet of records about the last two years of war survived. The entries began on the Eastern Front at the junction of three borders, namely Austro-Hungarian Empire, Russian Empire and the Kingdom of Romania, and in early 1918 his unit was transferred to the Italian Front, the area of Tyrol to be exact. The paper analyses to what extent the transfer to a different front influenced the changes in Mijo Čipor’s personality, that is to say how his experiences of war on these two fronts differed with the emphasis on the prism of childhood landscape as one of the basic determinants of every human being.
