So many people died during World War Two, why did it have to happen? They'd heard reports earlier giving the total number of war victims in Yugoslavia as 1,750,000 citizens—a figure confirmed by Radio-Belgrade. This number compared to the announcement of 16,500 Germans killed or missing in their country, revealed a staggering disproportion never before recorded in human history. Such as it was, the question as to what the war was really about—and who'd won it—remained unanswered. Certainly Yugoslavia couldn't call it a victory with the loss of 106 citizens for every German lost. This book tells that story.
