Summary/Abstract: The subject of this paper is the attack of the Yugoslav National Army Knin corpus and Serbian Territorial defence on the municipality of Livno in April 1992. Those were in fact two attacks, the first on 13 April 1992 in direction Glamoč - Livno and the second on 23 April in direction Bosansko Grahovo - Livno. Both attacks were successfully repelled by the crucial help of smaller reinforcements from Croatia. This event was also of strategic importance, because it was one of three successful defences from April 1992 that enabled territorial and political survival of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Despite its significance, archive sources for these fights are very modest and fragmented, because of what there are many unknowns regarding the fights. Thus, this paper is written with the intention to shed light on the event crucial for the course of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and end of war in Croatia in 1994 and 1995.
