Thanks to Velimir Wittner we now have the following information:
One possible source of official maps is the DOD BosniaLink.
The first map below was made before the Dayton negotiations and illustrates the ethnic distribution in B-H according to the census of 1991. It, to large extent represents the lines of separation of forces at that time.
We have created an "improved" map based on the exhibits at Dr. Perry's news briefing on Dec. 4, 1995. This map also reflects Mission: Peace.
In addition, serious questions remain unresolved:
Brcko is demanded by both the Federation and the Republika Srpska and controls the critical life line for the lands in the West.
This region was heavily populated by the Croats and suffered heavy casualties during the war.
Some say that its very southern tip as well as some villages in the Konavle hinterland are still negotiable to be given away to the FRY.
The Serbs in the "Serbian" parts of Sarajevo, most specifically Grbavica, are encouraged to continue to rebel and refuse to accept the Bosnian Federation authority over the unified Sarajevo.
An earlier attempt at division was made with an equally ridiculous map.
The first map above is based on the
Vladimir Vuksan's collection which in turn
was based on a map published in a Croatian newspaper.
