About this Item

Quarto, Various paginations, approximately 275 pages. Wraps. Map. Coalition Forces. Glossary. Appendices. Minor wear to edges, Some soiling to covers and edges. Pursuant to statute, the Department of Defense prepared this Interim Report which reflects many of the preliminary impressions formed by the Department since the cessation of hostilities. As a caveat, it was noted that much of the technical information needed for sound analysis was still being collected and the final report by the Commander-in-Chief of Central Command had not yet been completed. Nevertheless this presents a unique snapshot understanding of the conflict and the impressive role played by American armed forces. Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, unleashed an extraordinary series of events that culminated seven months later in the victory of American and Coalition forces over the Iraqi army and the liberation of Kuwait. Pursuant to Title V, Public Law 102-25, this report discusses the conduct of hostilities in the Persian Gulf theater of operations. It builds on the Department's Interim Report of July 1991. A proper understanding of the conduct of these military operations the extraordinary achievements and the needed improvements is an important and continuing task of the Department of Defense as we look to the future. The Persian Gulf War was the first major conflict following the end of the Cold War. The victory was a triumph of Coalition strategy, of international cooperation, of technology, and of people. It reflected leadership, patience, and courage at the highest levels and in the field. Under adverse and hazardous conditions far from home, our airmen, soldiers, sailors, and marines once again played the leading role in reversing a dangerous threat to a critical region of the world and to our national interests. Their skill and sacrifice lie at the heart of this important triumph over aggression in the early post Cold War era. Bookseller Inventory # 19953
