NEW BOOK! In English: "SECOND BRIGADE - First Licko Dinaric Chetnik Division 1941 - 1945" by Dusan Lukich, with English translation by son John Jovan Lukich

"I thank my late father Dušan (January 3, 1917 - November 27, 2006) for writing this book and I hope that those of you who read it will further appreciate the sacrifices of the Serbian people who lived through the horrors of the Ustasha and Communists. As well, I hope that you will have even greater respect for the Četnik fighters of Draža Mihailović - who bravely fought against all odds not for territorial gain or power, but rather so that the Serbian people - their nation, religion and customs - would not be wiped off the map in the Tromedja area of Lika and elsewhere."

21 years ago, back in 1991, my late father Dušan Lukich published a book describing the events in the Tromedja area of the former Yugoslavia during WWII.

It was a massive project for him, but one he felt compelled to complete for, as he states in the book, the truth about events in the Tromedja area of the former Yugoslavia during WWII needed to be told. As important, he wanted to ensure that the names of those who suffered, fought and died during that time, in that part of the country, would be remembered for their sacrifice. Therefore, the book is not a story about him as much as it is an historical reference document and his contribution to the history of the Ravna Gora movement.

The book was originally written in Serbian Cyrillic using a Cyrillic typewriter for each of its 335 pages. I translated this book and did not attempt to update it in anyway (other than adding a map at the end of the book).

Druga Brigada (The Second Brigade) is now available in English.

The original book is long out of print and only a very few original copies are left. I took on this project with the hopes that it can now reach a larger audience than in 1991 due to the massive changes in technology since then, and since it is now in English, it will reach a whole new group.

The English version of the book is now available as an eBook, and also available as a printed bound book.
