Australians have been involved in more conflicts as peacekeepers than as belligerents. This is a part of our history which every Australian citizen, and every school child, should know. Every Australian peacekeeping operation is here, with incisive accounts of the causes of the conflict, the aims of the multinational intervention, the Australian contribution, and the story of what happened. The book treats United Nations and non-UN operations alike and as well as describing the role of the military, it gives full coverage to missions where Australia sent civilian police. Other People's Wars highlights the diversity of Australia's peacekeepers: military observers tramping up mountains in Kashmir, or being shot at in Jerusalem; helicopters in the Sinai, RAN ships in the Persian Gulf; Army engineers in Namibia, doctors in Rwanda, signallers in Cambodia, infantry in Somalia and East Timor; civilian police in Cyprus and civilian peace monitors on Bougainville.
