Vlado L. SUDAR
VLADIMIR VLADO SUDAR, son of LAZAR, born on July 18, 1927, in Bačevići* near Mostar. A farmer. A member of the League of Communist Youth (SKOJ) since 1944. He joined the People’s Liberation Army in May 1944, serving in the 10th Herzegovina Brigade as a courier. A fighter who died in the battles near Bileća in September 1944.
Circumstances of Vlado’s death:
“On August 11, the 10th Brigade (whose battalions had already returned from Vilusi) consolidated its defense line: s. Pilatovci—s. Vučji Do—s. Baljci—s. Bogdašići and, with a combined maneuver across Bijela Rudina towards Plane, repelled the attack of stronger German-Chetnik forces towards Golobrdo, Vardar, and Tegarina Greda. In the battles from August 6 to 11, apart from those on Skorča Gora (near the 2nd Battalion) along the 10th Brigade’s axis, the enemy did not suffer significant losses (perhaps around ten disabled), and the information about the losses of the 10th Brigade is incomplete. Enemy actions were mainly countered through maneuvering, more through movement than firepower. The appearance of smaller units of the Brigade on the enemy’s flank led to immediate withdrawal. By abandoning the execution of the task, the enemy avoided losses. On Skorča Gora, Mladen Drinjak from Miruše near Bileća and Vlado Sudar from Bačevići near Mostar, fighters of the 2nd Battalion of the 10th Brigade, were killed.”
