Caught in the Crossfire
An Australian peacekeeper beyond the front-line. In 2006, while part of an unarmed UN peacekeeping team at the border junction of Lebanon, Israel and Syria, Australian Major Matina Jewell and her colleagues were caught in a full-scale war, with tragic consequences. A star graduate from Duntroon, Jewell became a highly valued army commander, earning eight war medals and serving with the American Navy SEALS and Australian Special Forces. Caught in the crossfire is a dramatic first-hand account of what really happens in modern warfare and the high price our soldiers pay for their country.
