Scott is joined by Kit Klarenberg to discuss an article he wrote about the Bosnian War. The article analyzes some declassified cables from Canadian Peacekeepers that give a window into what was actually happening on the ground. Klarenberg tells the story of the war for those who may be unfamiliar with it. Scott and Klarenberg then dissect some of the myths that persist today and observe a lot of parallels to later interventions, including today’s war in Ukraine.
