Abstract:

This monograph seeks to answer the question of how the nature of a war affects the following peacekeeping operation. The paper uses the war between Egypt and Israel in October 1973 and the United Nations Emergency Force II as a case study. The analysis focuses on the political and military aims of the parties involved, the nature and inter-relationship of consent and cooperation, the operational design factors of lines of operation and base of support, and the impact of key terrain. The topic is relevant because the United Nations has recently becoming involved in many peacekeeping missions. With the Soviet Union gone, the Security Council is acting to reduce violence around the world. The United States strongly supports UN peacekeeping operations financially and logistically.
