that can be drawn from it.

it discusses the strategy followed by both sides and the tactics

3. BACKGROUND
This manual was written by Dr. Stephen C. Pelletiere and LTC

significant to forces participating in or preparing for Operation
Desert Shield, this manual has been published in its present
form.
