Triggered by its invasion of Kuwait, Iraq was pitted against a 32-nation coalition of forces commanded by Gen. Norman
Schwarzkopf, whose air attacks led the way for a ground war that
met with success in less than four days. Although the coalition
was victorious, Saddam Hussein held on as president of Iraq.
