Cleanse Their Souls: Peace-Keeping in Bosnia's Civil War 1992-1993
This is a young cavalry lieutenant's moving and shocking account of front line service in the couldron of war: His troop of Scimitar light-armoured vehicles was attached to the I CHESHIRE Battle Group (under the charismatic command of Colonel Bob Stewart). Fresh from Germany he and his men found themselves in a highly political and lethally dangerous civil war. They witnessed appalling atrocities and human tragedy on a giant scale. Both the soldiers and civilians showed massive courage and resilience. Thanks to the Author's diary we have here an extraordinary spontaneous and important account of British troops performing vital military and humanitarian tasks. Warcorrespondent and MP, Martin Bell describes it as earning its place among the impartial narratives of the Bosnian War.
