Description - Conflict in the Balkans by Tim Ripley

Exposing the true scale and significance of the deployment of air power in the Balkans, this title details the activities of NATO and UN aircraft as well as local pilots in the former Yugoslavia, from bombing by B-2 stealth bomber to air-to-air combat and moving ground troops by helicopter. Air power has played a vital role in "Europe's Vietnam". This title looks behind the propoganda and media "spin" to the day-to-day realities facing liberal democracies who interfere in civil wars.
