“The book follows the war path of the third missile battalion and my thoughts, combat actions, feelings, that feeling when you are introduced to war with the most powerful countries in the world, left alone without any allies. This is a realistic record of rocket station,” said Aničić.
“I couldn’t believe that the war started, because we are part of the family of European nations, then we realized that we have to learn to war. We realized all the power at the disposal of the opponent and we searched the technical and tactical procedures and actions that may give us a way to survive,” added Aničić.

According to him, this is the only division that did not have losses in people and technology, which moved more than 100,000 kilometers.
