SYNOPSIS: In 1993, 4 million Somalis were starving and 26 nations sent their young men and women to make sure that food reached those who needed it. Bob Breen was asked to conduct research for a book on the Australian participation in the American-led peacekeeping operation in that country. The following day he re-enlisted in the army and four days later was in Mogadishu. This book is the result. It is a very personal account of the experiencesof the Australians who served in Somalia and an objectiove analysis of the Australian operation-the decisions, factors and events that led to it's successes and it's frustrations and failures.
