I bought this book in october 2010 but only now I gave it my time of reading. The book traces the history of american involvement in the Middle East affairs, specially in the Gulf region. We have 12 chapters and a last one which is a conclusion. Six chapters deals about the First Gulf War (1990/91), that is, the Irak's invasion of Kuwait. We can lecture about the first actions of the american in the regions, beginning with missionaries and traders. The role of the Navy during all period was great. The analysis of the strategic decisions to wage war against Irak is very good. The conclusion of the campaign before the correct time, that is, the complete destruction of the Irak army and the fall of Saddam, is well discussed from General Schwarzkopf point of view and the political determination of George Bush to stop the advance. Palmer is precise when wrote about the problems about the deposition of Saddam that actually turned real facts in the Second Gulf War (pg. 241), that is, the complete confusion inside Irak proper. Unfortunately the author didn't up to date the book till now. Highly recommended.
