    Selco, I can’t WAIT for the interviews, thank you so much for doing this! I just know I’m going to have lots of shifts of viewpoint and learn a lot.

    Selco, we can’t thank you enough! Every word you say is greatly valued.

    Could you please speak on what it was like in the rural areas and the bordering areas (like what is called the “suburbs” in America)? Was there any way for the city dwellers to escape to the rural areas or, at least, trade with the farmers or did the army set up roadblocks on the roads heading out of the cities to prevent people from leaving? Also, were the farms ransacked and then destroyed by the army as in a “scorched earth policy” like the U.S. General Sherman did to the Confederate States here in 1865?

    Thank you so much for your perspective!

      We were completely cut off except for the long walk over the mountains, but it was very hard, many died there too. So farmers could not help. People in rural communities were better. The armies did destroy what they could. But often when town was in good defensive position enemy simply passed and shelled it a bit. Not worth their time. In towns here people live since generations so they are tight knit group. They still had looting and fighting in some places but much less.

        Did you ever encounter people who didn’t agree with what the army was doing and defected from their own units? Did men from army secretly help some people, like some Germans did with the Jews during WW2? I’d like to think that not EVERY army guy wanted to kill and mame innocent people. Every man has a mother…….

          This happened but rarely. In war torn country not many places to flee to and bad consequences (death and torture) if you get caught. It was individual thing. If you wanted to risk it you could even try to buy your way out but nothing prevent anyone from shooting you and taking what you have. There was also hate in most people but some did help for financial gain.

            Man…….I’m blown away by your testimony Selco! My father is from Albania and he fled to the U.S. in the late 70’s. I have many cousins who still live in Macedonia(Struga), and Skopje as well as other places in eastern Europe, Albania and a few other countries. My cousins and father told me of the things that were going on in that area during the 90’s. I’m glad you made it out alive.

            Are you still living in the area where all this happened?

    Hello Selco,

    Amazing insight as to what happens in a war torn country. Have you considered doing an interview with Jack Spirko from thesurvivalpodcast.com. He has over 25,000 listeners that would love to hear about your experience.

    Jack is an guy awesome, and his show is about down to earth, pragmatic preparedness.

    Thanks for sharing such intimate information.

      Hello Jose,
      not sure because I want to stay anonymous but I will think about it. In the upcoming course my voice can be heard too it is just a bit altered. Thank you for your kind words and suggestion.
