Flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina  ,

The Yugoslav communists and their partizans wan the war in the mountains and with the people of Bosnia and Hercegovina. Now, there were loads of Serbs of course, the fiercest fighters, the tall Dalmatians, the gallant Montenegrins but the bread and salt, the bulk of the army, especially its support, were the Bosnians. It was very normal that a girl from a forsaken township like Kiseljak dates an engineer or whoever from wherever. Going out with a soldier was not looked down at and then, one needs to take a risk if saving one's but from the cliffs depends on some dating.
All the Yugoslav army units had a moral-political lesson 8:00 a.m. sharp and questions like these were explained and local guidance given by sergeants. The most delicate commands and units were based in Bosnia. And we were though to appreciate it. And were taken to Sarajevo.
And I was here again.
It is a hell of a dynamic city with a hell of a turbulent history.
