The Eyes of Orion: Five Tank Lieutenants in the Persian Gulf War

Synopsis

A highly personal account of the day-to-day experiences of five platoon leaders who served in the same tank battalion during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. While professional soldiers and historians will undoubtedly glean much from this narrative, the heart of the account concerns the experiences of the five young lieutenants. The authors treat their combat experience in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from the perspective of junior officers who served on the front line -- facing physical, personal, moral, and leadership challenges.
