From the cellars of history, this is the story of Voyslav, a Serbian school dropout, sucked into the turmoil of the early 20th cent., turned infantry colonel, and twice decorated with the White Eagle... More > with Swords. Beyond sketching a family’s destiny, this book encapsulates a generation eclipsed by the Allies’ performance. Vilified and chased by psychotic and racist enemies breaking all the rules of war, Voyslav’s courage is tested by personal loss, two Balkan Wars, a cholera epidemic, four devastating WWI invasions, a typhus pandemic, cataclysmic bombardments, famine, malaria attacks, and a national exodus of biblical scale. These events, mostly overlooked by historians, unknown to the children of Serbia’s allies, come to light. Statements from Serbia’s friends, strangers, and enemies alike attest to the nation’s humble but unwavering resolve to exist.
