OPERATION RESTORE HOPE: US Military Intervention in Somalia and the Battle of Mogadishu, 1992-1994
Examines the international intervention that took place in Somalia, including the successes, failures, and lessons learned. The crisis in Somalia set the tone for military intervention in a post-Cold War world, and although the same mistakes have been depressingly often repeated, the complexion of global military organization changed dramatically as a consequence of this episode.
Discusses United Nations efforts to adapt their collective military policy toward the challenges of peacekeeping, and peace enforcement, in a human environment only dimly understood, extremely austere in terms of local infrastructure, and with a warring clan leadership. Includes eight pages of color photos, about 100 black and white photos, and maps.
