Following the death of the Yugoslavian strongman President Tito in 1980, the several semi-autonomous republics and provinces that he had welded into a nation in 1945 moved inexorably towards separation. As the world watched a series of wars ripped through this modern European state. In this second of two volumes, experts on the Balkan region give a clear and concise explanation of the armies of the Croatian War of Independence 1991-92 and the Bosnian Civil War 1992-95. This includes the regular and militia forces which fought in these campaigns and which ultimately resulted in the UN/NATO policing of Croatia and Bosnia that continues to this day. The book details this fascinating conflict and is illustrated with rare photos and an extraordinary range of colour uniform plates.
