This is the most all-encompassing chronology and fact book yet to be published about Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. This detailed history consolidates official U.S. records and coalition sources from around the world and provides the most complete information available about day-to-day movements and events, units, missions, equipment, and personnel. Fifty pages of biographies provide information, most of which is published in the West for the first time. Appendices include a glossary, list coalition prisoners of war and service people killed in action, and provide data about coalition ground, naval, and air forces, Iraqi forces, and key personnel. Maps, charts, and photographs clarify the text and identify key targets and bases. A bibliography and a general index further enhance this comprehensive guide for researchers in military studies, international relations, and world history.
