In 'Kosovo Crossing', bestselling historian David Fromkin examines the clash between American ideals and Balkan realities on the battlefields of Kosovo. Leading NATO into the first war of its fifty-year existence, America sought to carve out a new role both for the alliance and for itself by establishing a world order. Yet like the other crises of the late twentieth century - in Iraq, Bosnia, Somalia, Haiti, and Rwanda - this war, in a land long plagued by deadly conflict, revealed the limits of America's power to reshape the world. Brilliantly weaving military, political, and historical analysis, Fromkin forges a new understanding of the paths that American leaders must explore to advance American values abroad.
