PEACEKEEPER:  THE ROAD TO SARAJEVO., MacKenzie, Lewis.

Vancouver Douglas & McIntyre 1993 155054098X / 9781550540987 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
345 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). Map endpapers, b&w photographs, maps. "Brave, tough, resourceful, and, rarest of all, blessed with an irreverent sense of humour, (Major-General Lewis) MacKenzie needed all those qualities for the biggest assignment of his military career: striving for peace among the warring factions in the former Yugoslavia. In this riveting memoir, MacKenzie describes how he created Sector Sarajevo, and with a 30-nation UN force set out to liberate the airport to receive desperately needed food and medical supplies. MacKenzie's outstanding and unorthodox leadership catapulted him to the status of an international celebrity, as he used the media - 'the only weapon I had' - to maximum advantage. Against the daily drama of shelling, sabotage, murder and shameless propaganda, motivated by ethnic hatreds, MacKenzie's adventures in Sarajevo read like a war novel - except that it is all tragically true. With the verve of a natural storyteller, (he) also recounts the often bizarre highlights of eight previous peacekeeping tours in the Middle East, Cyprus and Vietnam. From bluffing his way through the Turkish-Cypriot lines to boisterous forays into Saigon's netherworld; from basketball in the Gaza Strip to dodging sniper fire in Sarajevo; from daring diplomatic improvisations to bluntly outspoken criticisms of the UN bureaucracy: here is a veteran peackeeper's frank, funny and unforgettable story." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine/front hinge. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, tiny tear and wrinkling at bottom of front hinge/front panel.

"Captain James Ogilvie led B Company of the Queen's Own Royal Strathspeys, the 114th Highlanders, through the thronged streets of London. It was the diamond jubilee of the Queen Empress, and a day he would always remember with pride, as his company represented the British Army in India. But away on the North West Frontier trouble did not pause for the celebrations of the Raj. The Rajah of Drosh had rebelled, battalion losses were heavy, and Ogilvie was going to have to return to India with a larger than usual draft of raw recruits from the regimental depot at Invermore. Among these was a gentleman ranker, a fugitive from the Guards, who was to find his craving for active service brutally and plentifully fulfilled up the Chitral River and in the sniper fire of the passes between Peshawar and Drosh. Back in cantonments Ogilvie discovers his commanding officer has more on his mind than battalion losses, grievous though they have been. His second in command, the irascible, intemperate Major Lord Brora has gone absent without leave and has been reported consorting with the rebel Rajah - ."

582 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). Map endpapers, B&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "From the time of Clive to the violent days of Partition in 1947, British power in India was dependent upon the Indian Army. Only once was the link between the British officers and the Indian soldiers broken - at the brutal explosion of the Indian Mutiny in 1857; but even that apparently fatal rift was healed. (This book) examines the relationship between the Indian soldiers and their officers: what made them endure hardship, risk wounding and sometimes go to a certain death; their sense of duty and service, loyalty to the regiment and to the distant Crown. Dwelling sometimes on a campaign, sometimes on an episode in the course of a battle, sometimes on the story of one regiment or one man, Philip Mason tells the eventful and often dramatic story of the Indian Army. What emerges is a picture of an institution whose strength rested finally on a concept of personal honour."

Dust jacket has light to moderate edge wear/wrinkling, moderate to heavy creases at top/bottom edges of front panel. small tear at bottom of front hinge and front flap-fold, spine and flap-folds have browning.
