In December 1995, Operation Joint Endeavor--the first-ever ground operation conducted by NATO and the largest military operation in Europe since World War II-- sought to implement a peace agreement concluding a bloody, ethnically motivated civil war in Bosnia. The 900 cavalrymen of 1st Squadron, 4th U.S. Cavalry (Quarterhorse), and its attached units comprised a small but prominent portion of an international task force in Bosnia that numbered at its height more than 57,000 NATO soldiers. Despite austere conditions, mountainous terrain, bad weather, tens of thousands of land mines, and the periodic threat of terrorist attack, Quarterhorse upheld the peace in one of the most challenging parts of the American sector. Drawn from interviews, first-hand experiences, and contemporary media, this primary account of the first year of Quarterhorse's peacekeeping operations addresses every aspect of the squadron's experience, providing a vivid portrait of American armed forces overseas.
