Comment:Jovan Dragašević (1836, Požarevac – 1915, Niš) was a Serbian colonel and honorary general. In 1860 he graduated from the Artillery School and at the beginning of 1861 he became a professor (of History, Ethnography and Geography) at the same school (which later became the Military Academy). He is one of the first Serbian officers to have been a scientist, especially in the field of military geography. He wrote patriotic lyrics and romantic nationalist stories, was the editor of the "Vojin" military journal (1864–1870) and the founder as well as the first editor of the "Warrior" journal (1879–1888). During the Serbian-Turkish War (1876–1877), he served at Supreme Headquarters and then as Chief of the General Staff.
