What detracts from the work is positioning it as an "answer" to inflated claims about Ustasha actions in WWII -- and subsequent manipulation of those figures, and suppression of Chetnik and Partizan actions, by the ruling cadre of Tito's Yugoslavia, which was dominated politically by conservative, fascist elements of the Serbian army.
For a realistic, brief, non-political appraisal of the role of both WW2 Croatia and Serbia per the Jewish holocaust, see:
Finally, it must be recalled that until almost the end of the war the majority of the Partizans appear to have been Croats and Slovenes, with Serbs a distinct minority. This reflects the socialist organizing in the relatively industrialized north (Slovenia and Croatia) prior to WW2 versus the almost purely agrarian culture of the south (Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro). Of the three "indigenous" armed groups -- Ustasha/Croat, Chetnik/Serb, and Yugoslav/Partizan -- only the latter was largely not involved with collaborating with the Nazi/German and/or Fascist/Italian armies. And of course late in the war, especially after the liberation of Belgrade by the Red Army, the Partizans, too, found an allied army (the Soviet Union) to collaborate with ...
What the this means is simply that without going back to the Roman era, the Middle Ages, the Reformation, or even the 19th Century, we can find from WWI through the break-up of Yugoslavia and the 'ethnic cleansing' in Bosnia many bad and horrible crimes committed in the Balkans. The book in question helps supply a bit the facts needed to see the whole of that mosaic of horror. It does not excuse any expressions of malevolence, including the many outside the scope of its immediate subject.
Milan Babic, former political leader of the Serbs in Croatia, who admitted guilt and who was indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in 2004, made a public statement and recognized that he committed these crimes because he was a victim of the Pan-Serbism propaganda, the very one demonstrated in this book.
