I am looking for Nikolaus Lujanovits, former k.u.k. Major (01.02.1917, IR 24) and his career after 1918. Could anyone tell me wether he served in WW2 in the croatian army or not and give further details regarding his career after 1919?

Regards

- a battalion commander (3rd Battalion/28th Infantry Regiment) from September 1919 to April 1920

He did not serve in the Croatian Army during World War II. He lived as a retired military officer in Osijek (Croatia) together with his German wife Lila Woger. He was a Romanian Serb, born 1875 in Orșova, who converted from Orthodox to Evangelical Christianity in October 1941.

Hope this helps.
