This latest post will likely be my last post regarding WW1 for a while. What started off with a simple search for my great-grandfather turned into a little research project featuring other men from Duvno (then known as Županjac) who also served in the Austro-Hungarian army during WW1.
I have assembled a summary of my research that features all those great men from today's Tomislavgrad who became casualties (wounded, taken prisoner or killed) during the Great War. In total, I found almost 700 references that account for just over 600 men who suffered in some way or form. How many others served and came home safely is difficult to estimate. The total numbers are likely greater.
For the record, I did not find any information regarding my great-grandfather, Ante Ćurković but to my surprise, I did find my other great-grandfather, Marko Škojo, who was listed a couple of times as a prisoner of war in what is today's Eastern Ukraine.
I have put together a PDF that summarizes some of what I have put together. I have condensed the information to fit into one document. It was otherwise too large to fit into a regular document.
