One Response to Military History – January 2015 – Table of Contents

  1. William Frazer says:

    Stephen Wilkinson is either confused or naive. I was the senior G3 OPS NCOIC of 1 of the XVIII ABC Command Posts during Desert Storm and made many of the briefing at CENTCON/ARCENT HQ. . We were told numerous times that Arab forces would only Free Kuwait, and advance no further., The French told us numerous times that they would Not go North of the Euphrates River. Coalition Forces faced some 45 divisions- bombed and starved but numbers do count. The Saudi Royal Family indicated that going North of the Euphrates River could shut off our supply lines, and there was a possibility that the Syrian or even Egyptian Divisions who advanced into Kuwait and stopped could attack our rear echelons or seize our supplies. Meanwhile Saddam had 50+ divisions (many Republican Guard) along his borders with Turkey/Jordan/Iran. while we had around 17 divisions total ( Only 9 US/UK) Just how in blazes were we suppose to topple Saddam in 1991 without starting a Moslem/Christianity war?
