9 Atkinson, Rick. Crusade: The Untold Story of the Persian Gulf War.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, [1993]. 
Octavo, softbound, xii, 575 pp. Fine. “During the Persian Gulf War, the Pentagon imposed unprecedented restrictions on the media's access to the battlefield. but in this definitive account of the war, prizewinning journalist Rick Atkinson pierces the military's veil of secrecy and follows the unfolding battle from the first night to the final day, providing vivd accounts of bombing runs and White House strategy sessions, firefights and bitter interservice conflicts. As Atkinson expertly weaves individual stories into a thrilling epic narrative, we come to understand that the allied campaign against Saddam Hussein was a wholly different kind of war, one that transformed the very nature of modern warfare. Only after the guns fall silent can the real story of a battle be told, and in this book Rick Atkinson does full justice to our remarkable triumph in Iraq. Astonishingly fresh, powerfully written, Crusade is both a compelling human drama and a masterly portrait of the American military at war.”
