J.J. Braddock (a.k.a. Josip Knezevic) wrote the book “Slamanje duše“ - “The Soul Shattering“ in English. The book is entirely based on facts and actually is a tribute to the Bosnian tragedy. The book is a tribute to all the women and girls of Bosnia & Herzegovina who were subjected to the inhumane, intended, organized and perpetual abuse and rape – an important part of the policy of “ethnic cleansing“, designed by the Serbian megalomaniacal and genocidal chauvinists, who were (and still are) plotting to create "The Greater Serbia" - an ethnically cleansed political entity, by occupying and annexing territory of their neighbors (particularly Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo) and annihilating the native population by all types of terror, including already mentioned rape, mass murder, genocide, deportation, torture etc. Even after twenty years since the Serbs started the war (first “a weekend campaign” in Slovenia, than bloody butchery of Croatia, and finally genocidal deconstruction of Bosnia & Herzegovina), a just solution and the real peace have not been achieved; especially not in Bosnia & Herzegovina. By the Dayton Peace Agreement, brokered by president Clinton, Republika Srpska – a paralegal political entity within an internationally recognized entity (Republic of Bosnia & Herzegovina) was legitimized and ever since is a main obstacle to the peace in the region. Concurrently, for the first time in modern history, a political entity created entirely on genocide and ethnic cleansing was recognized by the world community!?
Some of the reported rape and sexual assault cases committed by Serbs, mostly against Muslims, are clearly the result of individual or small group conduct without evidence of command direction or an overall policy. However, many more seem to be a part of an overall pattern whose characteristics include: similarities among practices in non-contiguous geographic areas; simultaneous commission of other international humanitarian law violations; simultaneous military activity; simultaneous activity to displace civilian populations; common elements in the commission of rape, maximizing shame and humiliation to not only the victim, by also the victim's community; and the timing of the rapes. One factor in particular that leads to this conclusion is the large number of rapes which occurred in places of detention. These rapes in detention do not appear to be random, and they indicate at least a policy of encouraging rape supported by the deliberate failure of camp commanders and local authorities to exercise command and control over the personnel under their authority.

Women were kept in various detention centres where they had to live in intolerably unhygienic conditions, where they were mistreated in many ways including, for many of them, being raped repeatedly. Serb soldiers or policemen would come to these detention centres, select one or more women, take them out and rape them …. All this was done in full view, in complete knowledge and sometimes with the direct involvement of the local authorities, particularly the police forces. The head of Foča police forces, Dragan Gagović, was personally identified as one of the men who came to these detention centres to take women out and rape them.
