On 15th December celebrations took place of the 97th anniversary of the Battle of Kolubara, which was not only the greatest allied victory won during 1914, but also a textbook example of strategic action of the less skilled and less-equipped armed force which from its defensive position succeeded in diverting the course of fighting into the rapid and sudden offensive action.

The tacticts which was performed by General Zivojin Misic and who was awarded after the victory at Kolubara with a rank of duke represents a unique example of the military-strategic shift who brought to the almost defeated army the most significant victory in the whole First World War, stetement reminds.

Battle of Kolubara, one of the most important themes of all military academies in the whole world, was one of the major and the most significant battles of the Kingdom of Serbia and Austro-Hungary in the First World War.

The Battle of Kolubara lasted from November 15 until December 15, 1914 on a wider northwest area of then Kingdom of Serbia on the front of 200 kilometers.

In the Battle of Kolubara 22000 Serbian soldiers died and 27216 enemy soldiers and non-commissioned officers, as well as 1080 officers of the Austro-Hungarian Balkan Army Group.
