ABSTRACT
Romania was one of the contributors to The United Nations Iraq--Kuwait Observation Mission (UNIKOM). This is the account of one of the Romanian officers who participated to this mission between July 22, 1992, and October 14, 1993. The author leaves behind the usual technicalities and military jargon and focuses instead on the daily life of the observers, managing to recreate a vivid picture of both hardships and happy moments spent in the desert, all with a bit of local color.
