"Serving My Country - CroatiaRediviva"
Highly recommended: - a new book "Serving My Country - Croatia Rediviva" by Hrvoje Kacic, written in English.
Mr Kacic is a lawyer and professor of Shipping Law with a Ph.D. in Maritime Law who served as an internationally recognized Maritime law expert in many national and international Maritime Departments, Conferences and Conventions. He was elected President of the Committee for Foreign Relations in the first Croatian Parliament (Sabor) in 1990. With his extensive experience in politics, national and international, and personal meetings with important persons and Institutions of the Western European and American scene from the EU, the USA and NATO, before and during the war against Croatia, he has presented in this book facts, reports, information, and letters and addresses by individuals during the course of crucial developments in the area of former Yugoslavia. Some of these are known to many Croatians, there are others that are astonishing eye-openers.
Since Dr. Kacic is a native of Dubrovnik, much of his material concerns the attacks on his city, but it is also this city's destruction that finally made the international community decide to recognize Croatia as an independent state, in the hope of stopping the war. While not overlooking the suffering of all other areas in Croatia, he shows how Vukovar and Dubrovnik "top right and bottom left" illustrate the human and cultural catastrophes and the sheer courage of the citizenry.
This book should be read by every English-speaking Croatian and individual Croatian Societies should endeavor to send it to their Congressmen, Senators and Washington politicians. It will serve to stop any future revision of history.
The book is available at the cost of $20.00, including shipping, from CNA (Croatian National Association c/o N. Hazdovac, 777 W. 9th St. San Pedro, CA 90731, e-mail Dubrovnik5@aol.com
