Review:

"On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the war in the Persian Gulf, Tucker--a prolific military historian--has brought together an excellent resource on the event. . . . This comprehensive work includes plenty of information on prewar and postwar activity, providing a wide lens as well as a close-up view of the war. Articles cover a diverse number of topics, including discussions of women in battle, differences among the commanders, tactics and strategies, the environmental and health effects, lessons learned (and not learned), and a long entry on the earlier Iran-Iraq War. The writing is factual and balanced and is enhanced by 'Further Reading' suggestions, some published in the 2000s, at the end of each entry. Black-and-white maps, a glossary, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index further the usefulness of the work. This volume will be valuable to most public and academic libraries." - Booklist

"Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and general readers." - Choice
