    My nickname (Domobran) comes from Croatian Home Guard which had been established in 1868. with Hungaro-Croatian Agreement. Home Guard has long tradition in Croatia, beginning with Middle Ages when various types of militia (insurrectio) had been used to assist in defense against the Ottomans. This tradition continued through the Habsburg Monarchy, with 1868. seeing establishment of formal Home Guard units - most famous of which was 42nd Home Guard division.

    My interest in World War II is, well, war in general. However, I am most familiar with war in Croatia, naval war in Pacific and Indian Ocean, and also somewhat familiar with war in the Atlantic and the Eastern front. Interest in history has also led to me writing a blog.

    Btw,
    I was in IFOR and SFOR in 1996-1997. Our camp was in Doboj, Bosnia. We visited Eastern Croatia. Not gonna talk about the view back then but you might find some of my duty pics by using SFOR as the search word . Also visited Pula, Opatija and Dubrovnik with my parents by car in summer 1982. Loved the beaches during peace time. I also love shopping, especially music. I have some vinyls from the 1982 visit.
