Summary

Summary

U.S. Marines in the Gulf War, 1990-1991: Liberating Kuwait by Paul W. Westermeyer is the definitive history of the U.S. Marine Corps' involvement in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. This work traces the background behind Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait in 1990, the subsequent buildup of an international Coalition in an attempt to force him to withdraw without armed conflict, and the rapid Coalition offensive that drove Iraqi forces from Kuwait. This work focuses on the training and deployment of Marine air, ground, and supply units and their role in this war. Includes maps, illustrations, notes, and appendices.
