July 17 - 31 Oct 2018

The war in Kosovo was instigated by the Kosovo Albanian rebel group known as the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), with the intent of creating an independent Kosovo free from Yugoslavia, for the majority Kosovo Albanians. The Yugoslavia Army retaliation was brutal, thousands were killed and more than a million exiled. With the help of NATO forces and hard-line U.S. diplomacy the Kosovars won the war and later gained independence.
