Australian War Memorial Official History of Australian Peacekeeping, Humanitarian and Post-Cold War Operations 1988 - 1991.

The Australian Government has authorised the Australian War Memorial to research and write a six-volume Official History of Australian peacekeeping, humanitarian and post–Cold War operations

This book is Volume 2 of the Official History of Australian Peacekeeping, Humanitarian and Post-Cold War Operations. It is the first comprehensive study of Australia's role in the peacekeeping and peace enforcement operations that developed at the end of the Cold War. 

It recounts vital missions including Namibia (1989-90), Iran (1988-90) and Pakistan/Afghanistan (1989-93), and focuses primarily on Australia's reaction to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990, including its maritime interception operations, and its controversial participation in the 1991 Gulf War - Desert Storm.

With exclusive access to Australian Government records and through extensive interviews, David Horner explains the high-level political background to these activities and analyses the conduct of the missions. He brings to life the little-known, yet remarkable stories of many individuals who took part.

This is an authoritative and compelling history of how members of the Australian Defence Force engaged with the world at a crucial time in international affairs
