Fragments of War, a book by Mishka Gora

Just released. A book by Mishka Gora “Fragments of War”.

Just a glimpse through the pages of the book promises to take us on a captivating and heart-clenching journey among the hope, despair, love, compassion, merciless existence…that were, during Croatia’s war of 1990’s and into Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s the story that I eagerly look forward to reading and reflecting upon it in a new post here very soon. In the meantime and beyond it is a “must read” and it can be obtained via website, swiftly posted to all destinations in the world.

In brief:

“Trysta Montgomery is a twenty-three year old Australian university graduate who plunges into the world of humanitarian work at the height of the war in the former Yugoslavia in 1993. Initially secluded from the enemy in the relative safety of the beautiful Dalmatian coast and its overflowing refugee camps, Trysta eventually finds herself behind the front lines in Serb-occupied Croatia. Based on the author’s actual experiences as a humanitarian aid worker, this fictional account of a young woman’s foray into ‘someone else’s war’ is an intelligent and powerful observation of the 1990s conflict and its aftermath, a poignant journey into a European paradise devastated by war.”

About the author:

She worked as a humanitarian aid worker in the former Yugoslavia in 1993, holds degrees in American Studies, Philosophy, and History from Monash and Brown universities, and her doctoral work on conscience won the 2007 George Yule Essay Prize”.

    Ne vidim evropski raj nego evropsku monotoniju i raspad, jer Hrvmože lijepo živjeti i bez evropske unije. Dajemo suverenitet i nezavisnost u ruke onima koji su uveli 1991 embargo na oružje, naimew ne znam koliko vam je poznato da jedna suverena i nezavisna država zbog embarga EU nije mogla uvesti oružje i braniti svoju slobodu i živote od srpsko-crnogorskog agresora. Hrvatska ima sve u redu i pametno osim političara, i tu je naša slabost jer na vlast uvijek dođu oni koji puno obečavaju a ne mogu zadržati ni ono što imaju

    • Translation of Stjepan’s comment: Respected, I do not see a European paradise (heaven) but a European monotony and breakup, because Croatia can live nicely even without European Union. We’re giving away our sovereignty and independence into the hands of the ones who introduced arms embargo in 1991, that is I don’t know if you’re aware that one sovereign and independent country import arms due to EU embargo and defend its freedom and lives from Srebo-Montenegrean aggressor. Croatia has everything in place and intelligent except politicians, and that’s where our weakness is because it always happens that those who promise a lot and can’t even hold onto what they have come to power.

    • Hvala Stjepane. Thank you Stjepan
