What a superb bonus in  waking up to Croatia’s big day – 5th August – “Day of Victory and Homeland Gratitude” and “Day of Croatian Defenders” – we remember those that fell in 1995 Operation Storm that liberated Croatian territory from Serb occupation but more than this, we remember that 5th August 1995 was the end of horrors and the end of the terrible war Croatian people had to endure (1991 – 1995) simply because they voted at referendum for democracy and freedom from communism and Yugoslavia.
