 What do the figures for the Bosnian war-dead tell us ? « Greater Surbiton
Due allowance must be taken for the Serb civilians killed by Bosnian Army or Croat soldiers, in particular by rogue commanders such as Musan Topalovic-Caco, but the conclusion is inescapable: the single largest killer of Serb civilians during the war was the Serb siege of Sarajevo.
When all this is taken into consideration, the Muslim-Croat war cannot have claimed more than 2,000 civilian lives at the most generous estimate, or about 5% of the total civilian casualties of the Bosnian war as a whole.
To describe the Bosnian war as a ‘three-sided war’ is therefore something of an exaggeration; it was essentially a two-sided war within which there were some smaller-scale conflicts among the ranks of one of the two sides.

The “local” Bosnian Muslims at the camp were former members of the Muslim Forces of Travnik and troops who were by law members of units of the 3rd Corps, the 7th Muslim Brigade and the 306th Brigade.
