Synopsis: This study provides a picture of the US Army's performance during the Gulf War. It begins by chronicling the Army's regeneration in the two decades after Vietnam - the foundation of the Desert Storm victory. Each chapter starts with a personal combat story that puts the conflict into a human perspective. The book brings the civilian reader into battle alongside individual soldiers. It is a comprehensive account that allows individual conclusions, including accounts by Iraqi soldiers, about the largest armour battle since World War II.

About the Author: A U.S. Army brigadier general at the time, Robert H. Scales, Jr., headed the Army's Desert Storm Study Group. It comprised eight officersâmost veterans of the conflictâdrawn from different combat specialties and backgrounds. The group's research involved thousands of official documents and hundreds of personal interviews with soldiers from the grade of private to general officer.
