7 November 2018  - Book Launch   

Join us at “The Novel Idea Bookstore” for the launch of Dr. Sean M. Maloney’s new book, Operation KINETIC: Stabilizing Kosovo at 7:00 (1900 hrs) on 7 November 2018, just in time for Remembrance Day. Lest we forget, Operation KINETIC was the Canadian contribution to the NATO-led Kosovo Force a formation that was prepared to fight its way into the Serbian province and roll back the brutal subjugation of the civilian population. When the Milosevic regime caved in to international pressure and pulled their security forces out, the Canadian KFOR contingent had to down-shift from a warfighting posture to a stabilization role in an unplanned and dangerously complex environment. Operation KINETIC also occurred against the backdrop of a nuclear threat from Russia that was met by NORAD forces.
