Publisher: Dept. of the Air Force | ISBN: 0160732999 | 2005 edition | PDF | 493 Pages | 3.74 MB

This comprehensive official history probes the little-known story of how the Gulf War air campaign plan came to fruition. Based on archival documentation and interviews with United States Air Force planners, it takes the reader into the planning cells where the difficult work of building an air campaign plan was accomplished on an around-the-clock basis. It also places the complexities of the planning process within the context of coalition objectives in the Gulf War.

The 1991 Persian Gulf War was considered a brief and successful military operation with few injuries and deaths. A large number of returning veterans, however, soon began reporting health problems that they believed to be associated with their service in the gulf. Under a Congressional mandate, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) is reviewing a wide array of biologic, chemical, and physical agents to determine if exposure to these agents may be responsible for the veterans' health problems.In a 2000 report, "Gulf War and Health, Volume 1: Depleted Uranium, Sarin, Pyridostigmine Bromide, and Vaccines", the IOM concluded that there was not enough evidence to draw conclusions as to whether long-term health problems are associated with exposure to depleted uranium, a component of some military munitions and armor. In response to veterans' ongoing concerns and recent publications in the literature, IOM updated its 2000 report. In this most recent report…

FRONTLINE's "The Gulf War" is a comprehensive and critical analysis of the 1990-1991 war in which more than one million troops faced off against each other in the deserts of the Gulf states. From the Allied coalition's air war, to the ground assault, to the liberation of Kuwait, and the fallout of Saddam Hussein's retaining power, "The Gulf War" deconstructs what really happened, how it happened and why.

From 16 January through 28 February 1991, the United States and its allies conducted one of the most operationally successful wars in history, a conflict in which air operations played a preeminent role. The Gulf War Air Power Survey was commissioned on 22 August 1991 to review all aspects of air warfare in the Persian Gulf for use by the United States Air Force, but it was not to confine itself to discussion of that institution. The Survey has produced reports on planning, the conduct of operations, the effects of the air campaign, command and control, logistics, air base support, space, weapons and tactics, as well as a chronology and a com- pendium of statistics on the war. It has prepared as well a summary report and some shorter papers and assembled an archive composed of paper, microfilm, and electronic records, all of which have been deposited at the Air Force Historical Research Agency at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. The Survey was just that, an attempt to provide a comprehen- sive and documented account of the war. It is not a definitive history: that will await the passage of time and the opening of sources (Iraqi records, for example) that were not available to Survey researchers. Nor is it a summary of lessons learned: other organizations, including many within the Air Force, have already done that. Rather, the Survey provides an analytical and evidentiary point of departure for future studies of the air campaign. It concentrates on an analysis of the operational level of war in the belief that this level of warfare is at once one of the most difficult to characterize and one of the most important to understand.

The stability of the Persian Gulf is of great importance to the economies of the entire world–as amply demonstrated by recent events. This collection of essays surveys the state of the Persian Gulf in the wake of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War. By evaluating the geopolitical landscape of the Gulf, the book places into a clearer perspective the political, security, and diplomatic dimensions of the war. It also serves as a guide for reassessing those factors that affected the conflict's outcome and that will continue to influence developments in the region.

With spectacular footage and insider interviews, Frontline reconstructs the events leading up to the war, the war itself, and its aftermath. You'll hear first-hand accounts from key decision-makers like Generals Schwarzkopf and Powell and world leaders like Margaret Thatcher and Mikhail Gorbachev. Desert Storm was a triumph of technology with real-time views of spectacular light shows as antiaircraft fire lit up Baghdad's nighttime sky. After six grueling weeks, the US declared victory, just short of forcing Hussein to step down. Today Hussein remains in power, albeit under close surveillance by American troops remaining in the region. Was it a victory or was it a war with an inconclusive end.

The Gulf War of 1991 heralded a new type of warfare - one dominated by speed and high technology, that yielded a remarkably low level of casualties among the Allied forces. Just under a million Allied troops were deployed to the Gulf region, where they faced not only the extreme heat, but also biological, chemical and suspected nuclear threats. This book assesses both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Desert Shield, examining each forces strategies, and the political and military figures who were involved on both sides. The operational side of Desert Shield is also detailed in full.

Eliot Cohen directed the 5 volume survey. Lewis D. Hill, et al. authored this V. 5. Consists of two reports. The first report, A Statistical Compendium, concentrates on airpower-related aspects of the conflict. Organized in roughly chronological order, it moves from prewar force postures and the deployment of Desert Shield through the air campaign of Desert Storm, tabulating aircraft victories and losses as well as the human cost of the war. The second report, Chronology, outlines many of the principal events of clear, direct, and tangible relevance to the planning of the Gulf War.
