Bosnia itself is the chief geographic region of the modern state, and forms its historical backbone.
Bosnia, due to its geographic position and terrain, was probably one of the last areas to go through this process, which presumably originated from the urban centers along the Dalmatian coast.
This was caused by the ethnic cleansing of non-Serb population, of Bosnian Serb refugees from the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina due to Bosnian war (1992-1995) and of Croatian Serb Croatia due to the Croatian war (1991-1995).

Regions north, west and south of the historical core naturally gravitated towards Croatia, and the medieval histories of Croatia and Bosnia are intertwined.

The Ottoman invasion was unleashed towards Bosnia, but Bosnian aristocrats at the end of the 14th and the beginning of the 15th century, such as Hrvoje Vukcic Hrvatinic and Stjepan Kosaca, were almost solely preoccupied with their parochial power games and preservation of influence spheres.

 German genealogy: Donauschwaben in Bosnien (Bosnia)
Bosnia, of the former Yugoslavia, is defined for purposes of Donauschwaben settlement, as follows:
Illyrian tribesmen, speaking an Indo-European language akin to Albanian, were the earliest historical inhabitants of the region, rich in agriculture, forestry and minerals.

The wars in Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo resulted in the displacement of an estimated 2.4 million refugees and 2 million internally displaced persons.14 The largest population flows were associated with the war in Bosnia, during which an estimated 2.3 million people became displaced.
During the war, most of the 1 million people who became displaced within Bosnia had moved to areas controlled by their own ethnic group; as a result, most areas of the country, with the exception of central Bosnia, were populated and controlled by a predominant ethnic group at the end of the war (see app.

Why Bosnia converted en masse to Islam under the Ottoman Empire, while the other Balkan regions - with the exception of Albania, which also became mostly Muslim - remained Christian, was the subject of much scholarship in the wake of the Balkan war that followed the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991.
