|Hauptmann Gojkomir Glogovac, a Bosnian Croat, was perhaps the premier Bosniak soldier in the k.u.k. Armee. He was nicknamed "the machine gun" for his special technique of using this gun to the fullest and most brutal effect. Glogovac represented the interests of the unique soldiery to the General Staff, which made accomodations for these fighters in World War I. Bosnian regiments were broken down religiously with Catholic (Croat), Orthodox (Serb), and Mohammedan units.
