Serbia in the Great War 1914-1918

Serbia in the Great War 1914-1918 is a book of facts based on well-known sources and documents. Affirming the sources and scholarly assessments, the truth about Serbia's efforts, the enormous number of victims from Serbia and its irreplaceable role in contribution to the freedom and development of the whole European continent, the authors of this book indirectly remind their contemporaries of the need for self-respect and the respect of victims who fell for the freedom of their countries and for historical experience. They also point to the value of wisdom and a mature attitude in these turbulent times.

Stella Jatras

Stella Louis Jatras (nee Katsetos) from Camp Hill, PA, was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, as the fourth and youngest daughter of Louis (Leonidas) and Marina Katsetos, originally of Sparta, Greece, and later of Harrisburg and Carlisle.

Stella was quite literally a daughter of Sparta - and her father's name was Leonidas, no less. As Julia Gorin noted, she was Sparta, truly worthy of that heroic heritage. Axia!

In addition to the U.S. Department of State, her professional work included service with the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA and the Veterans Administration.

In 1953, she married George Jatras, also the offspring of Greek immigrant parents, and began a long and varied life as the wife of a career U.S. Air Force Officer.

As a career military officer's wife, Stella traveled widely and lived in several foreign countries where she not only learned about other cultures but became very knowledgeable regarding world affairs and world politics. She lived in Moscow for two years, where she worked in the Political Section of the U.S. Embassy. She also lived in Germany, Greece, and Saudi Arabia. Her travels took her to over twenty countries.
