9780595660339: The Gulf War Chronicles: A Military History of the First War with Iraq

There is no single source that contains the detailed minute-by-minute description of Operation Desert Storm available in The Gulf War Chronicles. Richard S. Lowry, an accomplished military historian, went to great lengths to compile the most accurate information available about each battle, and even each encounter, of the first war with Iraq. The Gulf War Chronicles is an account of each event, told as if Richard were there with each of the heroes, writing the story as it happened.

Richard started collecting information when Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990. At first, his goal was only to understand what really happened. Conflicting information abounded. Attempting to understand and ascertain the reality of the events, Richard compiled information in so much detail, he amassed volumes of periodicals, books, government reports, and information from the Internet. He collected information from over 100 bibliographical sources.

Over the years, Richard continued to cull through additional information and sources, causing a myriad of updates and rewrites. After the murders of 9-11, he decided it was time to share his research with the world. The product is The Gulf War Chronicles.

From the Author:

The Gulf War Chronicles is the only complete account of Desert Storm, from the opening moments of the air war to the safe return our POWs.

Why are we having a difficult time in Operation Iraqi Freedom? It is difficult to understand our current situation without understanding the past. How is it that our first victory was so swift? Most believe that we bombed the living daylights out of the enemy and then our ground forces rolled in to do nothing more than collect surrendering Iraqis. In fact, the Iraqis were, and are, a determined foe. Even after weeks of relentless bombing, many Iraqis stood their ground and resisted.

The Gulf War Chronicles is an account of the beginning of America’s struggle against evil in the Middle East. How can we achieve victory without understanding what really happened in our first encounter with Iraq?
