This story is the greatest single peacetime mobilization of the international community this century, told by the man who masterminded it. Jansson argues that despite some shortcomings, the UN system led to a largely effective operation which saved millions of lives. Harris and Penrose provide information essential to this and show conclusively that the eleventh hour intervention could have been avoided if the warning signals had been heeded.
