The KFOR invasion passing Stenkovich refugee camp, just inside Macedonia, before crossing into Kosovo, 1999

Photograph by Sergeant David John Miles, Kosovo (1999).

Following a Serbian military crack down against armed separatists and the wider ethnic Albanian population, thousands of refugees left Kosovo. In February 1999, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) peace-implementation force, KFOR, began to assemble in neighbouring Macedonia. Eventually a mixture of military action, included an extensive NATO air campaign, and diplomatic pressure forced President Milosevic of Serbia to agree to a Serb withdrawal from Kosovo and the deployment of the KFOR peace-implementation force.

One of 48 colour photographs taken by Sgt David John Miles, a reservist who volunteered to serve with 4 Armoured Brigade as Brigade photographer under the direction of Media Ops, Kosovo, 1999.
