A catalogue of the "Oluja" ("Storm") exhibits photographic reproduction of 25 scale models and displays of the exhibition. As well as fundamental information and authentic historical photos, the majority of the models (depending on the model or author) are also accompanied by a more extensive description of their work. 

Revised edition with 6 of pages in leaflet format 16.5 x 23.5 cm, containing photographs of scale models exhibited as part of an updated and final exhibition presented at the Zagreb Technical Museum, 2012. 

The booklet is very informative for the hobbyist modelmaker or researcher of the military history of Croatia and former Yugoslavia. Readers unfamiliar with European affairs can find the essential, verified information about the collapse of Yugoslavia, about the real triggers and course of the gruesome war and about the Military and Police Operation "Storm" ("Oluja"). This is the first single source of so much varying and pertinent information, as well as many previously unpublished photographs.

The booklet contains a short review of Croatian military iconography during the Croatian War of Independence. ("Croatian Homeland War")

Furthermore, some fascinating sections contain groundwork about the tanks from the Second World War used in former Yugoslavia and in the Croatian War of Independence. They also contain first-rate information and photos about the exotic and authentic Croatian improvised armoured vehicles.

Other central texts describe Croatian military aviation and Croatian Navy during the Croatian War of Independence, and a brief history of scale modeling in Croatia.
