Summary: The chief Pentagon correspondent for the New York Times and a retired three-star Marine Corps general join forces to bring us the definitive history of the Persian Gulf conflict and its aftermath. Based on years of interviews with senior allied officials in the Persian Gulf, Western Europe, and the United States, this absorbing narrative history takes us behind the scenes in Washington and Riyadh -- and reveals the debates, the power struggles, and the personaliti
es that shaped the course of the war. Going beyond other recent accounts, the authors explain the how's and why's of the allied coalition's military strategy, analyze what went right and what went wrong -- and offer revealing, unvarnished portraits of the generals and admirals in charge. Drawing on previously undisclosed military documents, some specifically declassified by the Pentagon at the authors' request, the book brings to light unreported military operations and provides the first authoritative account of some new tactics and weapons used to defeat the Iraqis. This fascinating, meticulously researched book will explode many of the myths that have crept into other accounts of the war -- and reveal some of the conflict's deepest secrets.
