EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE:
“When the Chetniks arrived in Grušća, the security forces were deployed above the hospital and engaged in an unequal fight that lasted about four hours. Our fighters managed to wound several Chetniks. A patrol sent to secure the retreat to the mountains encountered an ambush on the bridge over the Rakitnica River. The following individuals were killed: UROŠ BOŽIĆ from Zenica, HUSEIN TIKVEŠA, a worker from Mostar, and VASILIJE VUKIĆEVIĆ VAŠAK, a student from Mostar.”
* It appears the correct spelling of the surname is Vukićević, not Vukičević.
