Tribute to Army of RBIH

AS YUGOSLAVIA BEGAN TO DETERIORATE IN 1990 SOME PEOPLE WITHIN THE REPUBLIC OF BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA SAW THE NEED FOR POLITICAL AS WELL AS MILITARY ORGANIZATION.


IN 1991 THE BEGINNINGS OF WHAT WAS TO BECOME THE BOSNIAN NATIONAL ARMY WAS BORN. THE FIRST INSTANCES OF ARMED RESISTANCE AND ORGANIZATION BEGAN WITH THE CREATION OF THE BOSNIAN PATRIOTIC LEAGUE (PL). THIS WAS SEEN BY BOSNIANS AS AN ANSWER TO SERBIAN NATIONALISM AND AGRESSION AND THREATS COMING FROM BELGRADE.
AS POLITICAL DISAGREEMENTS TURNED INTO OPEN AGRESSION AND CONQUEST THE BOSNIAN DEFENSE WAS SHAPED BY A FEW DISTINCT DEFENDERS. THE BOSNIAN PATRIOTIC LEAGUE, BOSNIAN TERRITORIAL DEFENSES (TO), CRIMINAL GANGS AND POLICE FORCES. THESE WERE THE FIRST DEFENDERS OF THE BOSNIAN STATE IN 1992. THIS WEBSITE WAS DESIGNED TO DOCUMENT THE BOSNIAN ARMY AT ITS INCEPTION AND LATER AS THE ARMY TOOK A REAL MILITARY SHAPE AND FORM. THIS IS THE FIRST REAL ATTEMPT TO PUT MILITARY RANKS AND INSIGNIA MATCHING TO THE UNITS THAT DEFENDED THE BOSNIAN STATE AT ITS MODERN PLACE OF BIRTH.
