    In January 1993, the Australian Defence Force deployed its largest combat formation overseas since the Vietnam War. For four months the Australians secured the Baidoa Humanitarian Relief Sector in Somalia, ensuring the safety of civilians and the delivery of food and medical aid under conditions of famine and civil war. At once a written and visual history, this remarkable book takes readers from deployment to departure, depicting the harshness of conditions and, over time, the slow return of a people’s confidence. Photographs by Gary Ramage. Text by Bob Breen.

    Minor foxing to top edge. Two small closed tears to jacket crown, the larger 2.5cm to the upper joint. Near Fine Condition.
