The first oral history of the Gulf War brings the conflict vividly to life through interviews with everyone from the former British Prime Minister, John Major, to the tank regiments who fought there In 1988 Iraq was the region's dominant military power and ambitious to become leader of the Arab world. Saddam Hussein's war-experienced army were known to have used biological and chemical weapons in the past, and when 260,000 troops and 2,000 tanks crossed into Kuwait they met little resistance. Yet Iraq's defeat at the hands of the coalition forces was the most devastatingly efficient in military history. It was the first war fought over a resource: oil. The UK committed 43,000 troops to this new "high tech" war, and initially expected high casualties. Yet on the Iraqi side, uncounted thousands of soldiers were killed, many poorly trained conscripts. Returning coalition soldiers have since found themselves dogged by health problems, likely caused by the new technologies that proved so effective in battle. Iraqi power was diminished, but Hussein was allowed to remain in power, laying the scene for the protracted suffering of the Iraq invasion over a decade later. Hugh McManners' original interviews for "Gulf War One" provide a compelling picture and explode many myths of how this war was carried out, and why. From military planners and politicians, to ordinary soldiers and Gulf War Syndrome sufferers, both those serving and those caught up in the war tell its history in their own words.

Ebury Press, 2010. New book, 400 pages. Despite losing an eight-year war with Iran in 1988, Iraq remained the region's dominant military power. Saddam's war-experienced army comprised 260,000 troops and 2,000 tanks. But his 1990 invasion of Kuwait ended with the most efficient war victory in US history. It was the first war for the US since Vietnam, with the UK its largest non-Arab ally, and the first war fought over a resource: oil. A new 'high tech' war, it had a total of only 146 US casualties, yet health problems have since dogged thousands of coalition soldiers, and uncounted thousands of Iraqi soldiers were killed. Following the protracted suffering of the Iraq invasion and nation-building operation over a decade later, many feel it was all for nothing. Hugh McManners' original interviews for Gulf War One of combatants from both sides; Kuwait, Iraqi and Saudi citizens; military planners and politicians; human shield hostages and Gulf War Syndrome sufferers, allows those both serving and caught up in the war to tell its history in their own words.. Hard Cover. As New/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Ebury Press, 2010
