Colonel Bob Stewart, the first United Nations Military Commander of British Forces in the Bosnian War, became widely known as ‘Bosnia Bob’ by winning the confidence of the world’s media and lasting respect from soldiers of all ranks in very difficult circumstances, himself a target for sniper bullets. He shares his own experiences of the brutal conflict, the events he witnessed and what it taught him. 30 years on he offers a frank, eye-witness account of his experiences in Srebrenica and discusses the repercussions of the Bosnian War echoing down through the decades.
