Operation Deliberate Force: Reviews

Operation Deliberate Force - Promo“Fascinating Stuff”

– Rob Scott, Sunday Post Newspaper review, October 1999

“I must say I found the book an extra-ordinary record of events and a real tour de force”

– Chris Horrocks, Soldier Magazine 

“It reads well, covers the ground and unlike some distinguished and recently published autobiographies by politicians, it tells the real story.”

– Paul Beaver, Jane’s Information Group spokesman

“In Operation Deliberate Force, Tim Ripley has assembled through a remarkably extensive set of candid interviews with central military and political players in the Bosnian tragedy, a deeply-depressing catalogue of the new limits to diplomacy and military strategy … that many of those involved might prefer was not told.”

– Nik Gowing (Diplomatic Editor, Channel Four News 1989-96 – see Nik’s Foreword to the book
