THE GULF WAR - DESERT SHIELD AND DESERT STORM, 1990-1991. The Illustrated History of the American Soldier, His Uniform & His Equipment in USA's largest offensive operation since D-Day in WWII.
THE GULF WAR - DESERT SHIELD AND DESERT STORM, 1990-1991 by Anthony A. Evans. In 1990 the United States armed forces launched its largest offensive operation since the D-Day landings in World War II. The nature of the war was vastly changed; here was a purely desert environment, with sweltering heat during the day and bitter cold at night, making new demands on men and equipment. Indeed, the need for speed during the build up in Saudi Arabia created shortages of many desert-specific items, resulting in the deployment of troops variously clad and equipped.
