Description


This anthology of articles follows in the tradition of an earlier publication of the History and Museums Division, "The Marines in Vietnam, 1954-1973: An Anthology and Annotated Bibliography." As with the Vietnam anthology, the purpose of this anthology of articles from the U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings, Marine Corps Gazette, Field Artillery, and Washington Post; messages and briefings from senior officers;, and accompanying task organization, chronology, and bibliography, is to serve as an interim, reference for use within the Marine Corps and for answering inquiries from other government agencies and the general public concerning Marine activities and operations in the Persian Gulf, until the History and Museums Division completes an intended series of monographs dealing with the major Marine commands in the area. The 26 entries comprising this anthology provide a general overview of Marine involvement in the Persian Gulf conflict. The first five focus on the Marine Corps' contribution to the American effort to defend Saudi' Arabia--Operation Desert Shield. The second group concentrates on, the Marine Corps' role in the liberation of Kuwait--Operation Desert Storm. Within these two sections, the entries have been, organized to progress from the highest level of organization, the Marine Expeditionary Force, to the lowest, the platoon, squad, and individual Marine. The last three entries deal with the aftermath of the war, and issues raised during the war.
