This car against tank

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

27th June 2011 marks 20 years that this emblematic picture was taken just before the outbreak of the Croatian War of Independence. Namely, back then a red baby Fiat blocked an YNA (Yugoslav National Army) tank. The tank crushed it and that picture went around the world.

@ Martin I'm glad that you like it!

@ genealderson That poor Fiat symbolized fight against occupation, it was like fight between "David & Goliath".

many Americans died in the struggle against communism in Korea and Vietnam I was glad to see eastern Europe freed and to see the Berlin wall topple freedom is not free
