Reviews

The Gulf Conflict provides the most authoritative and comprehensive account to date of Iraq's occupation of Kuwait, its expulsion by a coalition of Western and Arab forces seven months later, and the aftermath of the war. Blending compelling narrative history with objective analysis, Lawrence Freedman and Efraim Karsh inquire into the fundamental issues underlying the dispute and probe the strategic calculations of all the participants.

Review:

"The marshaling of so disparate a coalition, the assembling of so large an army half a world away, and the winning of a stunning if inconclusive victory are parts of a tale that until [now] has not been told in all its complexity. What [the authors] have succeeded in doing is to bring to the story a wide-angle lens and a historian's detachment.- It is unlikely that there will be a better balanced or more comprehensive chronicle of that seminal event."--H.D.S. Greenway, The New York Times Book Review

"Freedman and Karsh have done a heroic job of mining the immense amount of contemporary journalism on the Gulf War and assessing it with regard to the long-term historical issues and structures."--Michael R. Beschloss, Newsday
