In the 1990s as Yugoslavia broke up a series of conflicts erupted that are often called the Third Balkan War. In fact what this was amounted to a series of regional conflicts that were in essence several different civil wars.
In the middle of this region lived a young man we shall call Selco who simply was happy to have friends and a job along with playing in a local rock band. Something that could have come right out of Americana. Then almost overnight the entire dream became a nightmare. The region was in the middle of a war, there was absolutely no support for over a year.
During this year Selco and his group lived without running water, no electricity, no food service or grocery stores, no distribution of any goods and absolutely no legitimate law enforcement. It was a time when simply walking down certain streets during daylight hours would be met with a hale of sniper fire. A time when a man who stood alone would meet with certain death. A time with very little medical care, abysmal sanitation and where most people buried dead comrades and family members in their back yards.
Today Selco still lives in this area and he runs a website called “Shit Hit the Fan School” where he provides information on what happened, what worked, what didn’t and how order was eventually restored. There is no other source of education on survival of a complete breakdown better then from someone who didn’t just live it, but survived it.
