Show synopsis Nothing has dominated the headlines and news bulletins to rival the war with Iraq. As politicians anticipate and pave the way for military action, readers are constantly reminded of the horrors that could be perpetrated by Saddam Hussein's Weapons of mass destruction (WMD). As thousands of servicemen and women prepare to be come engaged in a war to rid the Middle East of such weapons (and despotic leadership), it is vital that readers are made aware of the military strengths and weaknesses of both sides. Even though Saddam's forces would be fighting on home territory, militarily, technologically, strategically, and tactically the United States (supported by the UK and other countries) has overwhelming superiority. Nevertheless, there remains a very real threat of Iraq unleashing the dread of chemical and biological weaponry. Highly detailed, well illustrated, and cogently written, this book is an essential reference work. This book objectively analyzes the forces and the weaponry of both Iraq, still vengefully licking their wounds after the Gulf War, and the mighty United States.
