Chance of War: Canadian Soldiers in the Balkans, 1992-1995
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In the past ten years, thousands of Canadian "peacekeepers" have served in the former Yugoslavia. The soldiers who appear in this book all served in the first three years of the conflict. Ten were there as a part of Canada's contribution to the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR), Operation Harmony. The other, Lewis MacKenzie, was the Chief of Staff for UNPROFOR at the beginning of the UN mission. The stories they tell about their training, their experiences overseas, and finally their homecoming reveal that no matter how benign the government judges a situation to be when they deploy our troops, soldiers are always faced with the reality and the chance of war.
