Operation Storm – a new documentary film by Nikola Knez. In English.

Operation Storm was the single-most decisive battle of the Croatian War for Independence. Launched by the Republic of Croatia in August 1995, it was the largest European land battle since the Second World War. The success of this remarkable military action by Croatia came after four years of brutal fighting. Outnumbered, outgunned, but not outmaneuvered, this tiny new democracy prevailed in a David versus Goliath battle, a moral as well as military victory by an exceptional people. Storm ended the massive humanitarian disaster and genocide committed by the Serbian Army and Chetnik terrorists. It led to the liberation of one third of Croatian territory seized by the enemy, and it made possible the Dayton Agreement that brought peace to the region. This film documents the events surrounding this extraordinary battle, demonstrating that Croatia, along with its army and generals, deserve commendation from the world community, if not a Nobel Peace Prize.

 

 

(Operacija Oluja – novi dokumentarni film Nikole Kneza

Operacija Oluja bila je najodlučnija bitka hrvatskog rata za neovisnost. Pokrenuta od strane Republike Hrvatske u kolovozu 1995., bila je to najveća europska kopnena bitka od Drugog svjetskog rata. Uspjeh ove izuzetne vojne akcije Hrvatska postigao je nakon četiri godine brutalnih borbi. Ova malena nova demokracija brojčano nadmašena, oružano nadmašena, ali ne i izmanevrirana, prevladala je u borbi Davida protiv Golijata, u moralnoj i vojnoj pobjedi izuzetnog naroda. Oluja je okončala masovnu humanitarnu katastrofu i genocid koji su počinile srpska vojska i četnički teroristi. To je dovelo do oslobađanja jedne trećine hrvatskog teritorija koje je neprijatelj zauzeo, i omogućila je Daytonski sporazum koji je donio mir regiji. Ovaj film dokumentira događaje oko ove izvanredne bitke, pokazujući da Hrvatska, zajedno sa svojom vojskom i generalima, zaslužuje pohvalu svjetske zajednice, ako ne i Nobelove nagrade za mir.)

    Hrvatski general Slobodan Praljak se je takodjer borijo da I Hrvatske zemlje Bosna I Hercegovina budu dio Hrvatske drzave jer su to zemlja Hrvatskog Naroda, ali zlocinacka “europska zajednica” bila je protiv toga, pa je to natjeralo Ovog hrvatskog velikada da oduzme svoj zivot kako bih uvjerio cijeli svijet da se je borio I dao svoj zivot kako bi s parvom bila uspostvljena hrvatska drzava u njenim povijstnim granicama sve do Rijeka Tise, Drine, sa Sandzakom I Bokom Kotorskom pa hrvatskim Jadranom sa hrvatskom Istrom, pa uzduz sa granicama sa Slovenijom I Madjarsko sve to Tise. Povijest treba pisati istinito!

  2. Brilliant. Truth told. Now let’s spread it. Let’s proud…and loud to drown out the evil and propaganda from Serbia…truly a sick and deranged mentality in their national society.

  3. Thank you for telling me about this! I will watch it. I loved my time in Croatia, though it was only a few months. 🙂 These stories are so important. I talk to my students about the war often, so they remember it and keep it in mind. -Paige
