In 45 days, the Serbian army traveled 500 kilometers under combat and liberated Belgrade on November 1, 1918. During November, the Serbian army liberated most of the territory of BiH, and on November 21, entered in Banja Luka.

The Austrian-Hungarian Banja Luka's "Betrayal Process" led from November 1915 to April 1916 against 156 Serbs who were the intellectual elite of the time.

Of the 17 "betrayal processes" conducted in BiH, this was the largest and stirred up the European public, and is especially known for its extensive campaign to pardon 16 patriots sentenced to death.

King Alfonso Thirteenth of Spain engaged during the First World War to pardon Serbian patriots who were sentenced to death.
