Summary/Abstract: The life of Miladin Radulović “Krcun” is bounded by his war, political and scientiϐic career. As an offspring of Montenegrin badlands, through the valley of Lim, and over Golija and Kopaonik mountains, he reached Belgrade and the highest levers of power of the communist regime in postwar Yugoslavia. His road was paved with events worthy of a biography of an intelligence service operative of great powers. After liberation, he followed the same path, being engaged in both security and scientiϐic structures, while building an enviable career within institutions related to the Yugoslav nuclear program. Still working in the Party’s best interest, he conducted mining and geological research throughout the Yugoslav territory, but also in Africa, and was involved in a secret search for uranium. As one of the enablers of the powerful development of the Yugoslav nuclear program, Radulović inevitably witnessed its decrease and decline, his biography becoming one of the greatest contributions the 20th century has to offer to the historical science.
