The Persian Gulf War, often referred to as Operation Desert Storm, was perhaps one of the most successful war campaigns in the history of warfare. Saddam Hussein, leader of Iraq, invaded Kuwait in 1990. In 1991, after weeks of air strikes, US ground forces entered Iraq and Kuwait and eliminated Iraqi presence in 60 hours. Why Would Iraq invade Kuwait? Kuwait supplies much of the world’s oil supplies, and when Hussein invaded Kuwait, he controlled 24% of the world’s oil supplies (O’Hara). Though this is a good reason, it is not the only one.

The security of Persian Gulf is among Iran’s priorities, and we believe Iran’s shipping lanes must remain international .

The security of Persian Gulf is among Iran’s priorities, and we believe Iran’s shipping lanes must remain international, he added. Iran is the flag-bearer of security in the Persian Gulf, but that hinges on the export of our oil and the country’s ability to use the region. We’ll ensure the security of Persian Gulf as long as our own security is ensured, the Admiral concluded.

Wat!?
i, too, served in the 312th evac hospital during the persian gulf war. not sure ms. figueroa was even there based on the content of her book. i just hope none of her former co-reservists in the 345th csh recognize themselves in her very harsh comments. it does not appear that the author took into consideration that some of the people mentioned (nameless of course) may have changed over the last 12 to 13 years. she should have kept her writing just to the facts, excluding hearsay, which may at over a decade later result in some serious character assassinations. regardless, the content of the book is questionable, since as i said, having been there as well, am not sure ms. figueroa got all her facts straight, especially her numbers of patients treated. the book would, however, do well in the category of "historical fiction."

If the First Gulf War validated the Vietnam War, then the events of 9/11 and the Iraq War made the First Gulf War a real event. It was a real war with real casualties. This book tells the story of a nurse who deployed with the 312th Evacuation Hospital to Saudi Arabia on the border of Kuwait and Iraq. No infrastructure was there. Just the sand. The hospital treated over 12,000 patients, U. S. and British troops and hundreds of Iraqi prioners plus civilians severely injured. This was over the course of three months in tents erected in the middle of the Saudi Desert. Was the First Gulf War a dry run for the Iraq War? It doesn't matter. It was real and this book is the real story including how the Reserve forces actually work! It's not necessarily a pretty picture, but then when is war pretty? Some graphic descriptions.

She takes you "there" with her words. Great book! I'm looking forward to reading it again.
