If you’re too young to remember the war in Bosnia, you should definitely learn more. Although it is a very depressing piece of modern history, it is also full of very important lessons on survival and enduring great hardship.
This real life account of life during the brutal war in Bosnia stands as a very sobering wake-up call for preppers everywhere. What happened in Bosnia, particularly the capital of Sarajevo, is very much like what many of us are trying to prepare for every day. When we talk about urban survival or survival during civil unrest on this site, this is the kind of situation I often have in mind.
The war in Bosnia was so recent, that there are many people alive today who can share their harrowing stories. I have actually visited Bosnia and, although the war ended over 20 years ago, it is still spoken of frequently, and signs of the damage that was done and the tragedy caused are everywhere.
This account is certainly quite terrifying, but may it stand as a learning experience. Mental preparation is crucial, and it is important to always keep in mind what the reality of urban survival might be.
