The United Nations was founded, at the end of World War II, to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war." How successful has the UN been in keeping peace?
Opening with the Six Days' War in the Middle East, this book examines the peace-keeping efforts of the United Nations during wars and threats of wars in Palestine, Berlin, Korea, Suez, Hungary, the Congo, Cuba, Vietnam, and other danger spots around the earth.
T.R. Fehrebach shows what the United Nations can and cannot do to solve the world's great problems of war and peace.
