Abstracts
The demise of the socialist system and the establishment of a multi-party system in 1990 allowed the articulation of national policies in Bosnia and Herzegovina. They created a set of opposing political concepts which finally led to the beginning of a conflict started by the JNA and Serbian Democratic Party. On the basis of available documents, literature and scholarly publications, the author analyzes the course of waging the war on the Bosnian Posavina battlefront in 1992. During that year some of the largest battles in the course of the entire Homeland War - engaging more than 70,000 troops on both sides - occured in the strategically most important area of northern Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Bosnian Posavina region. These events are viewed within the context of combination of all the elements contributing to the situation on the battlefield. Some authors have argued that the Serb side owed their victory to a secret political agreement, disregarding the military aspect of the conflict, but there is no direct evidence to support this theory. To abstract a war from the context in which it is fought and to study its course as a game means to ignore a dimension essential to the understanding not simply of the war itself, but of the societies which fought it. A complete and thorough analysis points to a more complex situation. The overwhelming superiority in manpower and in mechanized and armored troops enabled to the Army of Republica Srpska to dictate fighting maneuvers in which the combined forces of the Croatian Army and Croatian Defence Council could not compete in a long term. This work aims not only at providing a military narrative, but also at analyzing the complex parallel processes that had an influence on the final outcome of the conflict.
