Throughout the Gulf War of 1991, unprecedented restrictions on the media’s access to the battlefield kept the true story of that brief, brutal conflict from being told. Now, after two years of intensive research, Rick Atkinson has written what will surely come to be recognized as the definitive chronicle of the war.
Crusade follows the unfolding battle from the first night to the final day, providing vivid accounts of bombing runs and White House strategy sessions, fire-fights and bitter inter-service conflicts. Weaving individual stories into the larger narrative, Atkinson represents the allied campaign against Saddam Hussein as a wholly new kind of war, one that has transformed the nature of modern warfare.

Well researched and highly interesting
If you want the complete history of Gulf I in all its détails, this is the book/audiobook. As usual Atkinson does remarkable researchwork and tells the story from A to Z. Like all his books a must for everybody interested in concise military history. The Plus is: It is also interesting to listen to as an audiobook...not an Andy McNab or Frederick Forsyth, but captivating enough for a serious book to keep the listener scotched to his/her mp3-player.
