Free History BONUS Inside! The late 1980s and early 1990s were times of significant changes. The Cold War was nearing its end as communism was slowly unraveling, new cyber and communication technologies were becoming more widespread, media was becoming more important and diverse, the economy was steadily growing in most parts of the world, and right-wing political parties and movements were gaining popularity across the globe. Amid all of those changes, a short but impactful war between the United States, aided by several allies, and Iraq occurred. Today it is known by many names, like the First Iraq War, Kuwait War, and, most commonly, the Gulf War or the First Gulf War. It was a rather short conflict, lasting just shy of seven months between late 1990 and early 1991. Yet it was still rather impactful as it showcased several essential innovations and changes in political and technological aspects of warfare, some of which are still part of modern conflicts. The Gulf War became a famous landmark in contemporary history. It signaled the break with the old ways of the 20th century and illuminated the path to our world today. For that reason, the Gulf War is still remembered and seen as an essential event in our recent past. In The Gulf War: A Captivating Guide to the United States-Led Persian Gulf War against Iraq for Their Invasion and Annexation of Kuwait , you will discover topics such as Iraqi-Kuwaiti Relations and the Prelude to the War Circumstances and Causes of the Gulf Conflict The Invasion of Kuwait and the Beginning of the War Military Forces of the Gulf War The War among the Clouds The First Battles in the Desert Iraqi Defeat and the Aftermath of the War Casualties, Consequences, and the Legacy of the Gulf War And much, much more!

    More than previous wars, this war showed that armaments were evaluated on precision and stealth, as well as their destructive powers.  This is because so much of the war was shown on our televisions.  This book shows where Saddam Hussein got the idea that he espoused; the idea that Kuwait belonged to Iraq.  It comes from a brief bit of history during the Ottoman Empire and reoccurs over the years.    Kuwait briefly (in the 1930s) thought of uniting with Iraq because their economy was shattered af More than previous wars, this war showed that armaments were evaluated on precision and stealth, as well as their destructive powers.  This is because so much of the war was shown on our televisions.  This book shows where Saddam Hussein got the idea that he espoused; the idea that Kuwait belonged to Iraq.  It comes from a brief bit of history during the Ottoman Empire and reoccurs over the years.    Kuwait briefly (in the 1930s) thought of uniting with Iraq because their economy was shattered after WWI and their role as a trade hub was disappearing.  However, the British nixed that idea.  Iraqi nationalists continued to view Kuwait as a possible addition to their country.  Once oil was found in Kuwait, they lost interest in Iraq's overtures. This book is very clear in explaining the pressures on Iraq that caused them to attack Kuwait.  It also shows that the US and USSR were not really interested in problems in the Middle East.  Hussein miscalculated, supported by his generals, that they could invade Kuwait without much ado. The beauty of a book like this is to lay before the reader the entire story, from the backstory to its culmination, so the reader can see the story in one long sequence (instead of piecemeal).  Like most Americans, I didn't really pay attention to the saber-rattling between Arab nations prior to 1991.  A great product, as usual.

    An exploration into politics and circumstances at the time... Having been a teenager of this time, I remember how widely televised this war was. Something that's not mentioned in this book was the fact that local and network television stations actually had special permission from cable news channels to stream CNN and CSPAN on their own frequencies. I wasn't yet aware how dire the situation was for the USSR during this war until i read this book. I also had no idea what the hostilities were about An exploration into politics and circumstances at the time... Having been a teenager of this time, I remember how widely televised this war was.

I wasn't yet aware how dire the situation was for the USSR during this war until i read this book. I also had no idea what the hostilities were about between Kuwait and Iraq. Those were well-researched points in this book that helped me understand things a lot better.
