This volume of the Official History of Australian Peacekeeping,
Humanitarian and Post-Cold War Operations is the first
comprehensive study of Australia's role in the peacekeeping and
peace enforcement operations that developed at the end of the Cold
War. It recounts vital missions including Namibia (1989 90), Iran
(1988 90) and Pakistan/Afghanistan (1989 93), and focuses primarily
on Australia's reaction to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990,
including its maritime interception operations, and its
controversial participation in the 1991 Gulf War. With exclusive
access to Australian Government records and through extensive
interviews, David Horner explains the high-level political
background to these activities and analyses the conduct of the
missions. He brings to life the little-known, yet remarkable
stories of many individuals who took part. This is an authoritative
and compelling history of how members of the Australian Defence
Force engaged with the world at a crucial time in international
