ABSTRACT
The article reports on the international cooperation to preserve peace in the Balkan region. Peacekeeping in the Balkans in the late fall of 2001 produced some funny feelings among fellow officers and men of the U.S. Army 29th Light Infantry Division. The older hands among them had participated in the Cold War. Here, they are working hand in hand alongside soldiers from Russia and its former Warsaw Pact allies. Here too, were Finns and Russians, managing to get along.
