Historical Description Edit
In the years following its independence from Belgium, the Republic of Congo was embroiled in civil war. At the height of the Congo Crisis, the state of Katanga seceded from the Republic of Congo, prompting United Nations to deploy peacekeepers as 'impartial' military assistance to the Congolese forces. In response, the Katangese ambushed a contingent of UN troops based in the mining town of Jadotdville. The 155 Irish peacekeepers known as 'A Company' were able to hold for six days before running out of ammunition, despite facing nearly 5000 men armed with mortars and field artillery.
