Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Hi to all! I was corresponding with Stoffel during one of our CM battles, and he suggested I post the email I sent to him regarding the Battle of Dubrovnik in 1991, and Luneville/Moncel in WW - II.

We (Two Wild HOG friends and I!) were up on Mount Srdj above Dubrovnik where a big battle occurred in Oct 91, and I discovered that one of our Wild HOGs was one of the 32 Dubrovnik Defenders who climbed up the mountain to defend against a couple of hundred JNA soldiers who attacked with tanks, air strikes, and heavy arty! In the end the JNA were driven back and never took the Napoleon Fort, Imperial! He gave us a personal tour of the War Museum there and took us to all the battle positions around the site! It was great! Nothing like hearing it from the Guy who was there on the ground when it happened!
 
Here is a video that shows that battle with shots at Mount Srd, which starts with the first airstrike!

I also discovered an interesting connection with the Moncel battle. I recalled that I had heard of Luneville and the Meurthe River before, and when I did a Google Search I realized it was very close to where my father's Unit, the 399 Inf Reg of the 100th Inf Div fought their first battle at Baccarat and Raon L' Etape on the Meurthe River in Oct 44 about not too far from Moncel
Here is a link to the map the 100th Div Association published of the battles the 100th fought.

Can you give a bit more of background?

I am not at all familiar with the Balkan wars of the 90s (nor the nomenclatures you are using), but sure interested to learn something.
