    SCENARIO

    The Siege of Sarajevo was the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. After being initially besieged by the forces of the Yugoslav People's Army, Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was besieged by Bosnian Serb forces of the Republika Srpska from 5 April 1992 to 29 February 1996 during the Bosnian War.

    The siege lasted three times longer than the Siege of Stalingrad and a year longer than the Siege of Leningrad. After Bosnia and Herzegovina had declared independence from Yugoslavia, the Serbs—whose strategic goal was to create a new Bosnian Serb State of Republika Srpska (RS) that would include parts of Bosnian territory—encircled Sarajevo with a siege force of 18,000 soldiers stationed in the surrounding hills. From there they assaulted the city with weapons that included artillery, mortars, tanks, anti-aircraft guns, heavy machine-guns, multiple rocket launchers, rocket-launched aircraft bombs and sniper rifles.

    The Serbs completely blockaded the city. The Bosnian government defence forces inside the besieged city were poorly equipped and unable to break the siege. The biggest single loss of life was the first Markale marketplace massacre on 5 February 1994, in which 68 civilians were killed and 200 were wounded. Medical facilities were overwhelmed by the scale of the civilian casualties. The day after the first Markale marketplace massacre, the UN Secretary-General formally requested NATO to confirm that air strikes would be carried out immediately...

    Too bad it's on a Sunday, I won't be able to make it. I was deployed to Bosnia, this might have been pretty interesting.

    There will only be three activates? Are they long? But this sounds pretty cool and I'll see if I can get my friends and such to come.
