During the Gulf War, the Allied governments and the Pentagon combined to impose unprecedented restrictions on the media's access to the battlefield. This book uses interviews with over 500 senior policy-makers, military officers and soldiers, in an attempt to provide a more balanced account of the war. The book follows the 42 days of war, from the first night to the final day, providing vivid accounts of bombing runs and White House strategy sessions, firefights and bitter inter-service conflicts. The book brings to life a rich cast of characters, from Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell to pilot David Eberly whose plane was shot down over Iraq.

"Exhaustive, albeit consistently absorbing, record of the 42- day Gulf War that offers fresh, often startling, perspectives on the planning and conduct of what the author characterizes as a brilliant slaughter.'' Focusing almost entirely on military operations, Pulitzer- winning Washington Post correspondent Atkinson (The Long Gray Line, 1989) provides a chronological account of how the US-led coalition liberated Kuwait." Kirkus ReviewsFrom the Author:
Appreciation of reader comments
I very much appreciate the generous and shrewd comments posted by several readers. I also must agree that information has emerged since CRUSADE appeared in 1993 that would have informed the book. On the other hand, it seems to me that the recent confrontation with Iraq confirmed much of my analysis of five years ago. At any rate, a grateful author says 'thanks' to the many diligent readers who have written to me over the years.
