More by Slađana Pavić.
Serbia in the Great War 1914-1918 is a book of facts based on well-known sources and documents, said the book’s editor, Mihajlo Vojvodić. He emphasized that the big powers, attempting to justify their role in the war, published their own big collections of documents just after the end of the war in which some parts of the documents were left out.
Affirming the sources and scholarly assessments, the truth about Serbia’s efforts, the enormous number of victims from Serbia and its irreplaceable role in contribution to the freedom and development of the whole European continent, the authors of this book indirectly remind their contemporaries of the need for self-respect and the respect of victims who fell for the freedom of their countries and for historical experience. They also point to the value of wisdom and a mature attitude in these turbulent times.
