From bombing by B-2 stealth bombers to air-to-air combat; from moving ground troops by helicopter to 'food-bombing' for refugees, air power has played a vital role in 'Europe's Vietnam.' This book exposes the true scale and significance of the deployment of airpower in the Balkans, detailing the activities of NATO and UN aircraft as well as local pilots in the former Yugoslavia. The true extent of the damage inflicted on the Yugoslav 3rd Army in Kosovo is still a matter for debate while the Balkans continue to be a region of conflict and ethnic hatred.
