Abstract

In this text, the author analyzes the preparations and activities undertaken by two UNPROFOR Canadian battalions, parts of Princess Patricia’s infantry brigade, which were stationed in UNPA West sector, in Western Slavonia region. The preparations of these battalions, especially their understanding of the conflict roots, to a great extent determined the behaviour of the Canadian officers in crisis situations on the field. Being a well equipped and trained formation, one of the few competent in UNPROFOR structure, the Canadians received more demanding tasks from their authorities, and tried to accomplish them in order to distinguish themselves. In the area around separating line near Pakrac and Lipik, known by many incidents and tense situations, Canadian battalions ambitiously tried to implement Vance’s plan and depend UNPA zone.
