Editorial Reviews

"William Allison has written a concise, highly readable account of the 1991 Gulf War. Students of History and International Affairs will especially welcome its thorough exploration of the reasons behind the conflict and President George H.W. Bush's building of the impressive international coalition that drove the Iraqi army from Kuwait." - Professor Spencer Tucker, Virginia Military Institute
