9780006530909: Trusted Mole

Fuelled by outrage at his arrest in December 1997 by MoD police, Milos Stankovic, a major in the Parachute Regiment of the British Army and the son of a Royalist Serb, decided to write his extraordinary story: a dramatic tale of life on the edge in war-ravaged Bosnia.  His life was constantly at risk; nevertheless, he ran a 'Schindler's List' operation, smuggling families (Serb, Croat or Muslim) out of besieged Sarajevo. His arrest came as a thunderbolt. What lay behind it will be revealed in the book and will ignite an international controversy.

From the Publisher:

This is the powerful, disturbing, highly acclaimed account of how a British officer, of part Yugoslav origin, became embroiled in the savage maelstrom of the Bosnian war. His work as interpreter and go-between for high British commanders propelled Milos Stankovic from one crisis to another as he helped negotiate cease-fires, secured the release of U.N. hostages, and organized the escape of stricken families from Sarajevo. Yet his close contacts with the Bosnian Serb leadership bred suspicion and paranoia on all sides ‹ not just in the Bosnian Muslim and Serb ranks, but in the minds of the Americans as well. In a final, horrific twist, the author was arrested by British authorities on suspicion of being a Serb spy ‹ more than two years after his return from Bosnia. Britain¹s Observer later wrote: ³This man was a hero, caught in the middle and discarded by a military bureaucracy that should be shot at dawn for its betrayal.²

About the Author:

Milos Stankovic was born in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia in 1962 - a British citizen with Scottish and Royalist Yugoslav parents, themselves refugees from Yugoslavia. Educated in England, he enlisted in the Parachute Regiment in 1981; the Army sent him to university where he studied Russian at Manchester and in Minsk in the Soviet Union. He has served with the British Army in Belize, Northern Ireland and Africa, and with the UN in post-war Kuwait and Iraq, and two long tours in Bosnia between December 1992 and April 1995. Prior to his arrest at Staff College in October 1997, Major Stankovic served as a company commander with the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment.
