|Nordbat 2 and the concept of Mission Command|

|Interesting take on the concept of Mission Command, a concept actively used by Nordic military forces since the 40's/50's, and how this played out in practice during the Yugoslav civil wars. Nordbat 2 operated in the same area and same regional command as the Dutch battalion in Srebrenica, but achieved dramatically different results through the willingness to take risk and use force, sometimes in direct violation of the UN rules of engagement at the time.|
