Author: Jan Willem Honig

By focusing on the single most horrific event in the Bosnian War, the authors reveal the complex and ambiguous nature of international involvement in that conflict. In July 1995, the "safe area" of Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia fell to Bosnian Serb forces, despite the presence of Dutch peacekeeping troops. Some 20,000 women and children were deported. Several thousand Muslim men, both soldiers and civilians, were killed in cold blood by the Bosnian Serb army.
