View all copies of this ISBN edition:

British operations since the end of the Cold War have spanned the full spectrum of military commitments from limited, short and sharp demonstrations of force in Sierra Leone and Libya, through to the intense and drawn-out campaigns of Iraq and Afghanistan. As combat operations in Afghanistan draw to a close, and defence cuts and war weariness threaten to bring an end to an era of interventionism, the question now needs to be asked: have Britain s military endeavours made it, and the world, a safer place and at what cost? Wars in Peace considers the impact of British military operations on domestic security; the legacies of UK interventions and their strategic outcomes; the link between public and elite opinion on intervention; the financial costs of and industrial contribution to operations; the conduct of British strategy; and the UK s alliances and alignments. It brings together rigorous analysis and provocative conclusions in a comprehensive audit of British military operations of the last quarter century.
