A Personal Account Of The Gulf War
A no-holds-barred account of the most high-tech war ever fought. General Sir Peter de la Billiere, Britain Gulf War commander, vividly describes the build-up to conflict - the political wrangling in Whitehall and the troops' dismay at Margaret Thatcher's ousting, the ferocity of the air war, designed to minimise Allied casualties, and the superb performance of Britain's desert Rats as they helped defeat Saddam Hussein's much-vaunted army in under one hundred hours . . . But it is also about superb leadership and teamwork.
