A Warrior For Peace

The convoy of trucks evacuating 400 Serbs from their besieged headquarters in central Sarajevo in May had just begun to move when the trouble began. Bosnian militiamen attacked the middle of the column, pulling officers from trucks and executing them. Canada’s senior peacekeeper, Maj.-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie, was near the front of the line with Bosnian President Alija Izetbegovic and his military commander, who had offered the Serbs safe passage, but the Bosnian leaders were unable to control their own troops.
