"Gordon L Rottman, author of US Mechanized Infantryman in the First Gulf War describes in great detail exactly what happened in this confrontation from the perspective of the main force deployed against Iraq... The former Green Beret and Vietnam War veteran has a keen eye for the soldier's perspective on things. Rottman also has a command of the tactical overview and a gift for making explanations of weaponry and mechanized infantry tactics seem easy to understand... All in all this new title is a must-have for anyone interested in the Gulf War. This is a great book packed with information for the historian and modeler alike." --Karl N Hoy, Toy Soldier & Model Figure
