Overview


Osprey's examination of Bosnia, Kosovo and Macedonia's involvement in the Yugoslav Wars (1991-1995), as well as their involvement in the conflicts of the years that followed. Following the death of the Yugoslavian strongman President Tito in 1980, the several semi-autonomous republics and provinces that he had welded into a nation in 1945 moved inexorably towards separation. As the world watched a series of wars ripped through this modern European state. In this second of two volumes, experts on the Balkan region give an unprecedented, clear and concise explanation of the armies of the the Bosnian Civil War 1992-5 as well as the conflicts in Kosovo and Macedonia. This includes the regular and militia forces which fought in these campaigns and which ultimately resulted in the UN/NATO policing of the region that continues to this day. The book is illustrated with rare photos and an extraordinary range of colour uniform plates.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The two volumes of The Yugoslav Wars are handy references that help make sense of the many military forces and their dress.” —Military Trader

“Overall this is a very detailed and informative publication from Osprey covering a conflict that stretched for much of the 1990s, yet one that is not strongly covered in the modelling world. Throughout this publication the authors provide the highest levels of detail and information backed up with a relatively detailed study of the overall situation these forces were involved in...This publication is suitable for Historians and Modellers alike with its unrivalled detail of unit formation/organisation, the history of the conflicts that took place and the superb colour plates and reference photographs...Highly recommended!” —Rob Harvey, Aeroscale (October 2006)
