AARC’s latest Occasional Papers publication, Rapid Intervention and Conflict Resolution: British Military Intervention in Sierra Leone by Richard Iron is now availble. The British operation in Sierra Leone is regarded as a rare success for Western military intervention. In the popular narrative, British paratroopers deployed to Freetown over a weekend and, through a mix of professionalism, organisation and chutzpah, ‘[saved] the UN from disaster and [hastened] the end of an exceptionally nasty war.’ In this paper Richard Iron provides some fascinating lessons from this intervention. A great read.
