Disappointment with the performance of UN peacekeeping operations became symbolic of the UNs failure to emerge from the ashes of the Cold War as a rejuvenated key player in international and, increasingly, internal peace and security.United Nations Peacekeeping Operations reflects some of the thinking, some of the experiences in the UN and in the field, some of the frust

The U.S. Army had not participated significantly in U.N. peacekeeping missions in the past. In 1991, two U.S. Army officers, Maj. George Steuber and Maj. James Faust, and a U.S. Marine, Maj. John Dill, were sent on a dual mission as liaison officers with the U.N. Advanced Mission to Cambodia and as part of the U.N. Transition Authority in Cambodia.
