... there was a surprise invasion of Kuwait by its neighbour, Iraq, long grumbling discontents over territorial borders and greed for more oilfields finally flaring up and causing the largest offensive operation since D-Day to liberate the overrun country. Overwhelming logistic, qualitative and quantitative technical superiority allowed the 'live' war to be dictated by the Allied Coalition, a six-week air assault being so effective in destroying Iraqi resistance that the ground war to free Kuwait was a mere 100 hours long. It [took] more than two years for this book to be researched and published because it stands alone amongst the many Gulf War publications as the most comprehensive, detailed, informed and authoritative account of all aspects of the war in the Persian Gulf. Significantly, the moment the cessation of hostilities was declared in the Gulf, the leaders of the Coalition nations immediately spoke of 'winning the peace' so demonstrating an important third element of the vital subject of the Persian Gulf. Similarly, through the conflict itself, commentators were constantly referring to the pre-war years when the West, and East, had fuelled Saddam's war machine, failed to resolve political disputes that rankled the Arab countries, and missed opportunities to avoid the descent into 'live' war. Thus, any analysis of the war must address itself to these three parts of the equation. If such evaluation is carried out by the professional assessors employed by Britain to educate its future soldiers, at its Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, then it would surely be deep-thinking, militarily valid and a major contribution to the debate. If it were written in a manner that could be read and assimilated by the civilian student of current and military affairs, then it would surely be a most valuable work. The Gulf War Assessed is all of these. [This book] is a skilled compilation of informed comment and adjudication--a professional assessment. With detailed maps based on official defence charts and statistics, The Gulf War Assessed is the single most valuable and worthwhile study on that conflict available. A thought-provoking, informed, yet highly readable essay on the most important military event in fifty years. -- Inside jacket flaps
