His personal account of his military experiences, "Peacekeeper, Road to
Sarajevo", became a number one best seller in 1993. A two hour TV
documentary based on the book and hosted by the general was aired
internationally and won a New York film festival award in 1997.

Since his retirement from the military, Lew MacKenzie regularly appears
