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.

    " Excellent writing, as is typical of all of Rick Atkinson's books. I was surprised how much of the Gulf War came back to me even after 20 years. Hard to believe--the Gulf War was 20 years ago! Highly recommend this book!! "

    " A decent play-by-play of Gulf War I. Nothing particularly revelatory, but useful background nonetheless. "

    " Another brilliant insight into the first Persian Gulf War and the liberation of Kuwait. "
