Summary
"The official U.S. Army account, Certain Victory provides the clearest picture to date of the Army's performance during the Gulf War. In a colorful, readable style, it begins by chronicling the Army's remarkable regeneration in the two decades after Vietnam - the changes that were the foundation of the Desert Storm victory. Each chapter leads off with a compelling personal combat story that brings you right into battle alongside individual soldiers and puts the conflict into human perspective. Certain Victory is a quick read and free of military jargon, offering a balanced, comprehensive account of the largest armor battle since World War II."--BOOK JACKET
