@Xekoslav I’m not trying to offend someone here, but I’m sure this comment won’t exactly be greeted :) From what my father has told me Vukovar took so long to fall because of frequent armistices that were made. JNA and Serbian paramilitaries would go forward, then an armistice would be signed, it would calm down for a bit then Croatian side would brake mentioned armistice, so JNA and paramilitaries would again launch the attacks, and so on. I repeat, that’s just what my father told me. Although it is true that JNA was collapsing in that time, regular people on both sides never wanted a war.
