In June 1999, NATO troops were hailed as the “liberation of Kosovo”. Western media promptly packed it up and headed home from the Balkans. The declaration of victory was naïve and premature given the Alliance’s stated objectives of deposing Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, and creating a safe, multi-ethnic environment in Kosovo. Rather than ending the civil strife, NATO’s intervention set in motion a series of events which would have violent repercussions through Serbia, Kosovo and especially Macedonia, over the next two years.
This is Taylor’s first-hand observations and interviews with the people and the players and a very personal account of the war, and its aftermath in Serbia and Macedonia.
