Stevan Mirković (Serbian Cyrillic language: Стеван Мирковић
In 1944, during World War II in Yugoslavia, Mirković joined both the Yugoslav Partisans and the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (SKJ). He was wounded on the Syrmian Front and near Brčko. He was prompted to Major General in 1975, Lieutenant General in 1982 and Colonel General in 1987. In the 1980s, he held a number of senior positions in the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA). In 1987–1989, he held the position of the Chief of the General Staff of the JNA. He retired from active military service on 31 December 1989. However, he continued to be a member of the Organization of the League of Communists in the Yugoslav People's Army. He was a fierce critic of Slobodan Milošević, as Milošević's influence in the Socialist Republic of Serbia grew during 1989–1990.
