Caught in the Crossfire

| 47 min

Caught in the Crossfire is an in-depth and moving look at how Canadian soldiers keep peace in wartorn former Yugoslavia. Seen through the soldiers' eyes, it pays tribute to a community of men and women who have earned the respect of all sides in a bloody dispute. Throughout the film, we gain an awareness of the difficult work of our peacekeepers and of the successes that have resulted from our Canadian policy of refusing to take sides in the conflict.

This film is part of the 3-part Protection Force Series about Canadian peacekeeping in former Yugoslavia.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised
