Synopsis

This is the first personal account of a division in combat during Operation Desert Storm. It is an inside view of the French Division Daguet, which had the task of defeating a dug-in Iraqi Regular Division, taking a critical airfield and road junction, and protecting the entire left flank of the 18th Airborne Corp during the allied sweep to the left. The Daguet, made up of hard-hitting Foreign Legion and Marine units, achieved all of their objectives. The author won a Bronze Star for his services in the Gulf during the action described.
