This edition is bilingual and includes both the English translation and the original text in Croatian. Translation provided by Petra Sapun

"When the world is turned upside down, when a man is overcome by the cataclysm of war thrust into his life, his reaction will reveal his true personality. Because he will not act according to an adopted pattern, neither according to the recommendations of the politicians, nor according to the reaction of the majority-he will act according to his congenital affinity and his nature. This book by Helena Pericic is that kind of testimony: of one's discintiveness." -Vesna Krmpotic "Writing while exposed to deadly projectiles was an intellectual recourse of a person cognizant of the power of the written word...Helena Pericic develops a discourse that refrains from proving a point, or making any ideological commitment...Her journal entitled On the Red Horse, Peter and Paul, a testimony on the war-time Zadar hardships and a piece of work highly acclaimed for its literary values, is recommended as an obligatory reading material in literature and history courses." -Vlatko Perkovic, author of Thematic Circle Completed: The Works of Helena Pericic "Until recently, the writing of war diaries or dispatches was often the preserve of men. Helena Pericic has broken the mould in this regard. She has used her pen to dig through the blood-soaked ground, the shattered detritus of war and hatred. Her diaries, her dispatches-call them what you will-relate to the tragic events that circumscribed the Homeland War, the battle for independence which the Croatian people fought in the early 1990s. Strangely, this war is one which is already forgotten in the Western European imaginary. Her writing calls us back, however. It remonstrates with us; it demands that we remember and give testimony. Pericic's writing is beautiful and perceptive. It is evocative. In an age when the beauty of the world is forgotten it reminds us of the power that is the written word. It is living, breathing poetry." -Micheal O hAodha, writer, Limerick, Ireland
