Program Description

Broadcast: Feb. 22, 2000, 1812 - Twelve months ago, in the skies above Kosovo, NATO went to war. It was a war that unleashed terrible brutality. It was a war where the politicians, rather than the military commanders, dictated the battlefield strategy and tactics. At its end, the war had produced one million refugees, thousands of civilian deaths, and a broken land still without peace. FRONTLINE correspondent Peter Boyer undertakes the first in-depth examination of a European war rife with diplomatic infighting and military stumbling. Broadcast: Feb. 29, 2000, 1813 - In hour two of this analysis of a military effort hampered by diplomatic infighting, senior military leaders -- including Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Clark in his first in-depth interview -- tell the story of political constraints, internal divisions, and miscalculations that shaped the war in the Balkans.
