When it comesMoreThe real story of the 1991 Gulf War.From Shield to Storm is a book by two experts but is not a book for the experts, though given the dismal performance of many pre-war expert military analysts some of them could stand to read it. When it comes to military history and military affairs, there are always plenty of books for and by the experts. But the rest of the world, those who foot the bill for vast military establishments and the think tanks (or universities) which employ the experts, are often left puzzling out acronyms, dense jargon and thicker prose of the experts tomes. Rich in detail and observation, From Shield to Storm is spritely and at times, necessarily irreverent. From Shield to Storm contains easy-to-read details on the combat units involved, how they were organized, their weapons and equipment, how they fought and how they managed to obtain such a lopsided victory. Similar details are also provided for the Iraqis. Political, social and historical background is also provided.
