Operation Desert Shield - Desert Storm
To many, the war waged against Iraq by the United Nations Coalition was a most successful operation, serving to liberate Kuwait and, in the U.S., engendering "a gift of pride" in ourselves and in our military leaders.    Desert Storm helped heal the horrors of Vietnam, just as the one-sided Spanish American War helped unite the nation after the Civil War; or so the story goes...

Operation Desert Shield / Desert Storm
by Kevin Don Hutchison, John Admire
Hardcover  (1996)

A review of this detailed chronology will serve to darken this picture for many users.   The random deaths caused by accidents on board ships and from friendly fire and the listing of service people killed in action are part of the sobering record of this war presented by a noted military historian and author of World War II in the North Pacific: Chronology and Fact Book (Greenwood, 1994).   Daily accounts follow this general plan: (a) activities of major figures, crucial events, grand strategy; (b) U.S. ground forces activity (c) U.S. naval and air force activity; (d) other coalition forces; and (e) activities of Iraq's armed forces.
The work includes a list of coalition prisoners of war, a complete list of all named or numbered military units engaged in the war, and biographical information for key U.S. and British personnel; biographical information for key figures from other countries is often limited to name, rank, and military unit.    A carefully selected and constructed bibliography identifies official documents (mostly U.S.) and regimental and general historical accounts of the war.    The effort made to make the glossary as complete as possible will be appreciated by users. Careful name and subject indexing makes it possible for users to locate information on total troop strength as of a certain day, tanks and aircraft destroyed, economic costs, and the death dates for individuals killed in action.    Charts group statistical information.   Two of three line-drawn maps show troop deployments for February 21 and 24.   More detailed maps would be useful in enabling readers to follow order-of-battle details given in the text.
Order of battle for the coalition is made clear in the text; Iraq's plans cannot be outlined for lack of information.   The chronology does not include coalition diplomatic efforts, U.S. congressional activities, or comments of President Bush or other world leaders.   Researchers on the war will be encouraged by the complexity of the work, taking time to consult the glossary, study maps, and read background material.    Laypersons wishing to find a quick understanding of events will find it too detailed for their purposes.   Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.

Senior managers of world-class companies now recognize that logistics is an important source of competitive advantage.   In the Gulf War, leadership and logistics came together, and extraordinary goals were achieved.   Now, one of the initiators of Gulf War strategies presents lessons for all organizations facing major operational challenges.   In the Gulf War, leadership and logistics came together and extraordinary goals were achieved.   In clear, compelling language, General Pagonis recounts the Gulf War from the first fateful telephone call, to the mobilization of 550,000 troops and the shipment of 7 million tons of supplies, to the enormously complex challenge of bringing home a half-million soldiers and their equipment.

Defense Planning for the Late 1990s:
Beyond the Desert Storm Framework

(Studies in Defense Policy)
by Michael O'Hanlon
Paperback  (1995)

How does the United States fashion a defense policy for a world in which it has strong and reliable allies, no major enemies, and the best military in history - and yet at the same time has a host of worries about its future security and a strong sense that the world is anything but safe? At a time when all of government is being asked to become more efficient, Michael O'Hanlon shows how the United States could prudently cut defense spending by as much as 10 percent without risking its ability to respond to simultaneous regional crises or maintain global commitments.   He calls for Western support of more innovative approaches to UN peace operations and a reorientation of the NATO alliance away from concern with Russia and toward other combat scenarios.
