Ljubomir Glavaš, one of the first volunteers of the "Devil's Division" (369th Infantry Division) and father of the famous Croatian politician and general Branimir Glavaš. When the war broke out, the young Ljubomir volunteered to the Croatian Home Guard, and then joined the legionnaire "Devil's Division", in which he served until capitulation. He surrendered to the new authorities pretending to be a Home Guard, hiding his legionnaire service. After half a year spent in a POW camp, he was recruited into the Yugoslav Army, against which he fought for two and a half years during the war. He was born in the village of Drinovci, near Grude; there are two more members of the Glavaš family (or families) from the same village known to have served in the German armed forces during World War II: Ante Glavaš, a member of the "Prinz Eugen" Division (born 1907, killed in February 1943), and Mato Glavaš, a member of the German-Croatian Police (born 1921, killed in April 1944). On the other hand, one Luka Glavaš (born in 1915), also from Drinovci, was killed (in April 1945) as a member of the Partisan XIII Proletarian Brigade.

Ljubomir Glavaš, jedan od prvih dobrovoljaca "Vražje divizije" (369. pešadijska divizija) i otac poznatog hrvatskog političara i generala Branimira Glavaša. Po izbijanju rata, mladi Ljubomir se dobrovoljno prijavio u Hrvatsko domobranstvo, a zatim i u legionarsku "Vražju diviziju", u kojoj je služio sve do kapitulacije. Novim vlastima se predao pretvarajući se da je domobran, skrivajući svoju legionarsku službu. Posle pola godine provedene u zarobljeničkom logoru, regrutovan je u Jugoslovensku armiju, protiv koje se dve i po godine za vreme rata borio. Bio je rodom iz sela Drinovaca, kod Gruda; poznata su još dva člana familije (ili familija) Glavaš iz istog sela koja su služila u nemačkim oružanim snagama za vreme II svetskog rata: Ante Glavaš, pripadnik "Princ Eugen" divizije (rođ. 1907, poginuo februara 1943), i Mato Glavaš, pripadnik nemačko-hrvatske policije (rođ. 1921, poginuo aprila 1944). S druge strane, jedan Luka Glavaš (rođ. 1915), takođe iz Drinovaca, poginuo je (aprila 1945) kao pripadnik partizanske XIII proleterske brigade.
