In 1992, Bosnia descended into a savage and bitter war, which by 1995 had claimed over a quarter of a million lives. Following the Dayton Peace Agreement between the warring Bosnian Serbs and Bosnian Muslims, NATO began its first land operation, taking over from the UN Protection Force. That same day a British battlegroup moved from Sarajevo to northwest Bosnia, a total of only two hundred men and the only British troops in that part of Bosnia.It was charged to enforce the peace in an area of responsibility a hundred kilometres wide, through which wound a front line separating the territory of the Bosnian Muslims from that of the Bosnian Serb forces. Patrolling a vast mine-strewn territory was a unique and unprecedented task for the troops, and this book, written by their commanding officer, serves as testimony to the extraordinary quality of those British soldiers.
