In this text, defence analyst Jeffrey Record targets the conventional view of the Gulf War victory. In his characteristically provocative style, he answers controversial political, military and strategic questions raised by the war and its aftermath. Could the war have been avoided altogether? Why were US assessments of Iraqi capabilities so inaccurate? Could a better general than Saddam Hussein have derailed the Coalition assault? Did air power win the war? Were US military planning and operations really free of meddling by civilian authorities? Did the US armed services work together harmoniously? For those who think they understand what happened in the war, the book should challenge their conclusions.
