Abstract
Hrvatska je prošla težak put od jednostranačke jugoslavenske republike do višestranačke samostalne države s cjelovitim teritorijem. Prvi demokratski izbori u Hrvatskoj završili su mirno i korektno. Prijašnji događaji, prvenstveno raspad Saveza komunista Jugoslavije, odredili su daljnji tijek događanja jer tada najjača karika u Jugoslaviji postaje Jugoslavenska narodna armija. Vojska je trebala braniti sve narode, ali preobrazila se u silu koja je branila interese pobunjenih Srba u Hrvatskoj. Presudan je bio mjesec kolovoz 1991. jer tada počinje srpsko-jugoslavenska agresija na Hrvatsku. Uslijedili su krvavi i žestoki vojni sukobi. U početku su JNA i pobunjeni Srbi brzo napredovali u svom planu presijecanja Hrvatske na crti Virovitica-Karlovac-Karlobag. Međutim, pred kraj 1991. hrvatske snage oformile su Hrvatsku vojsku koja je branila teritorijalnu cjelovitost. Početkom 1992. postiže se dugo očekivano primirje koje traje do 1993. i vojnih operacija koje su se vodile u smjeru oslobođenja okupiranog teritorija. Završnim operacijama Bljesak i Oluja u nekoliko je dana 1995. oslobođen veći dio Hrvatske. Cijeli proces uspostave teritorijalne cjelovitosti završava dogovorom srpske i hrvatske strane o prekidu neprijateljstva i mirnom vraćanju Podunavlja pod ustavnopravni poredak Hrvatske.

Parallel abstract (English)
Croatia went through a difficult time from a one-party Yugoslav Republic to a multi-party independent state with its complete territories. The first multi-party democratic elections in Croatia ended peacefully and correctly. Previous events, primarily the dissolution of the League of Communists, determined future events because the strongest party became the Yugoslav National’s Army. The Yugoslav National's Army was supposed to defend all the peoples, but it became a force which was defending the interests of the Serbian rebels in Croatia. August 1991 was the most crucial month as that’s when the Serbian-Yugoslav aggression against Croatia began. Bloody and fierce clashes followed. At the beginning, the Yugoslav National’s Army and Serbian rebels advanced rapidly with the intention of dividing Croatia, i.e. establishing the Virovitica-Karlovac-Karlobag line. However; towards the end of 1991, Croatia managed to form its army with the purpose of defending territorial integrity. In early 1992, a truce was achieved which lasted until 1993, until the beginning of military operations which were launched to liberate occupied territories. The last two military operations are of great importance: Operation Flash and Operation Storm because most of the previously-occupied territories were liberated in a couple of days. The whole process ended with the Serbian-Croatian agreement which was intended to cease hostilities and peacefully return the Danube region to the constitutional order of Croatia.
