As the uncertain peace following the end of the Cold War dawns upon the world, the role of the United Nations in becoming a major factor in solving conflict and bringing stability is moving to the forefront of world attention. This book, in great detail, describes the intervention of the United Nations in the Congo (now Zaire). At the time, this intervention was the largest in the history of the United Nations. As the threats to international peace seem to mushroom, this superb book details the players, the actions, the emotions and the accomplishments of this crucially significant historical achievement.
