Reveals the whole war fought between Iraq and an international coalition, and offers a refreshing insight into this unique conflict. Early in the morning of 2 August 1990, the Iraqi Republican Guards stormed into Kuwait. Although encountering some problems, the Iraqi forces occupied Kuwait in a matter of days. However, when President Saddam Hussein of Iraq unleashed his military upon Kuwait, little did he know what kind of reaction he would provoke from the Western superpowers, and what kind of devastation his country would suffer in return. Desert Storm reveals the whole war fought between Iraq and an international coalition, from the start of this campaign to its very end. AUTHORS: E. R. Hooton is a successful retired defence journalist, including acting as a Jane's yearbook editor.

E. R. Hooton is a successful retired defence journalist, including acting as a Jane's yearbook editor. He is the author of more than a dozen military history books ranging from the Balkans Wars 1912-1913, air operations over the Western Front 1916-1918, the breaking of the Hindenburg Line 1918, the Red Army 1937-1941, air operations 1939-1945 and the Communist Chinese victory of 1945-1951. This is his fifth book for Helion's Middle East@War series. Tom Cooper is an Austrian aerial warfare analyst and historian. Following a career in worldwide transportation business - during which he established a network of contacts in the Middle East and Africa - he moved into narrow-focus analysis and writing on small, little-known air forces and conflicts, about which he has collected extensive archives. This has resulted in specialisation in such Middle Eastern air forces as of those of Egypt, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, plus various African and Asian air forces. Except for authoring and co-authoring more than 30 books - including about a dozen of titles for Helion's @War series - and over 1000 articles, Cooper is a regular correspondent for multiple defence-related publications.
