Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter analyses how German soldiers, despite increased risk to life and limb, remarkably quickly came to accept the new international tasks and how they were willing to work as part of a multinational military coalition as required in out-of-area operations. It also looks at the approach of German soldiers to the new tasks and points to the distinctly civilised cast of the Bundeswehr's international efforts.

Keywords: German soldiers; international tasks; multinational military coalition; out-of-area operations; Bundeswehr
