Osprey Elite 54 : UN Forces 1948-1994

This book details the various UN peace keeping operations around the globe from 1948-94. This period have seen UN forces deployed in almost every corner of the world from Africa (Namibia and Somalia), South America (El Salvador), the Middle East (Cyprus, Sinai, Golan Heights, Lebanon and Kuwait), the Far East (Cambodia and Korea) and Europe (Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia). In addition two major wars have been fought under the banner of the United Nations - The Korean War and the First Gulf War. A huge number of nations have contributed troops to these various efforts, with the result that the UN forces are extremely varied and colourful. The vast variety uniforms and insignia are illustrated in twelve full page colour plates. Text by Ken Bradley with illustrations by Mike Chappell.
