Se estimează că distrugerea Vukovarului de catre sârbi a dus la moartea a cel puțin 3000 de persoane, precum și cu expulzarea a cel puțin 20000 de croați din oraș și din împrejurimi. De asemena, artileria sârbă a tras până la un milion de obuze către Vukovar, acesta fiind primul oraș european ras de pe fața pământului de la Al Doilea Război Mondial. Costul estimat al pagubelor de la Vukovar a fost estimat la 2,5 miliarde de dolari.
“The Croatian War of Independence: Serbia’s War of Conquest Against Croatia and the Defeat of Serbian Imperialism 1991-1995 tells the compelling story of Croatia’s defeat, against all odds, of the Yugoslav People’s Army and numerous Serb paramilitary formations in defense of its independence and internationally recognized territory. This book offers in vivid detail many answers to the often-posed question ‘what happened in the Balkans in the first half of the 1990s?’ Ante Nazor’s blend of keen academic insight and extensive research shows irrefutably that Serbian imperialism, based on the might of the Yugoslav People’s Army and the aggressive concept of ‘Greater Serbia’, caused profound destruction and loss of life on a scale unseen on the continent since the end of WWII. The main importance of this book is that it clearly illustrates the danger Serbian imperialism would have posed to Europe had not the Croatian Armed Forces, forged in the desperate struggle to save the country, broken the back of the Yugoslav People’s Army and put an end to Serbia’s imperialistic aspirations,”
