Tim Ripley’s Press Card

Operation Deliberate Force:
The UN and NATO campaign in Bosnia 1995

The Author - Tim Ripley

Tim Ripley covered the wars in the former Yugoslavia from 1992 to 1995 for Jane’s Intelligence Review and Flight International. He is author of Air War Bosnia (Airlife Publishing, 1996) and a research associate at Lancaster University’s Centre for Defence and International Security Studies (CDISS).

“The seed for this book was sown during some 21 visits to Bosnia, Croatia and Italy between 1992 and 1995” says Tim Ripley. “I spent several months in 1994 and 1995 with UN forces in Bosnia and Croatia, at NATO bases in Italy and on US aircraft carriers in Adriatic, witnessing many of the events recounted in this study.

Between 1995 and 1998 I made seven trips to Bosnia and Croatia to re-visit many of the important battlefields and to speak to Bosnian, Croat and Serb military personnel about their wartime experiences. As far as I know, no one has tried to piece together the confusing events of 1995. It was a decisive moment in the wars of the 1990s in the Balkans and we are still living with the results.”
