The escalation of terrorism in the modern world has conditioned the establishment of the “third option” (the space between the police and army) and the creation of a “third force” (special forces) to combat terrorism. An integral part of the establishment and development of the Republic of Croatia and its armed forces is the formation and development of special military and police anti-terrorist forces. These parallel processes have their source in the conditions of the Homeland War. Special forces have played a crucial role in the Homeland War and the liberation of Croatia. Special police unit and Special Operations Battalion are not only one of the pillars of Croatian anti-terrorist capacity, but also an important factor in Croatian integration into Euro-Atlantic security and defense associations.
