About the Author

RICK ATKINSON is a New York Times bestselling author and winner of a Pulitzer Prize in 1983 for a series of articles on West Point's Class of 1966, which later became the basis for his book The Long Gray Line. A veteran staff reporter, foreign correspondent, war correspondent, and senior editor for the Washington Post, he wrote the paper's lead stories during the Gulf War.

Reviews

"Exhaustive, albeit consistently absorbing, record of the 42- day Gulf War that offers fresh, often startling, perspectives on the planning and conduct of what the author characterizes as ``a brilliant slaughter.'' Focusing almost entirely on military operations, Pulitzer- winning Washington Post correspondent Atkinson (The Long Gray Line, 1989) provides a chronological account of how the US-led coalition liberated Kuwait."
