Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this unique book tells the compelling story of how the Army helped to bring a proud but battered country back to life - Kuwait after it was liberated during Operation Desert Storm. Our soldiers found themselves performing such diverse roles as repairing police cars, rebuilding damaged power systems, restoring the water supply, and feeding zoo animals. In the process they touched the lives of every Kuwaiti resident, forging bonds of trust and contributing immeasurably to stability in the region. Though immensely successful, the Kuwaiti recovery operation was not perfect; After Desert Storm highlights key lessons learned. The reconstruction of Kuwait clearly demonstrated that post-hostilities activities can be as important as conflict itself, and that military leaders must plan carefully for such a recovery mission if they are to capitalize fully on battlefield success. After Desert Storm illuminates appropriate roles for American soldiers and civilians in a post-hostilities environment. We would be wise to take its lessons to heart.
