There is no single source that contains the detailed minute-by-minute description of Operation Desert Storm available in "The Gulf War Chronicles." Richard S. Lowry, an accomplished military historian, went to great lengths to compile the most accurate information available about each battle, and even each encounter, of the first war with Iraq. "The Gulf War Chronicles" is an account of each event, told as if Richard were there with each of the heroes, writing the story as it happened.

Richard started collecting information when Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990. At first, his goal was only to understand what really happened. Conflicting information abounded. Attempting to understand and ascertain the reality of the events, Richard compiled information in so much detail, he amassed volumes of periodicals, books, government reports, and information from the Internet. He collected information from over 100 bibliographical sources.

Over the years, Richard continued to cull through additional information and sources, causing a myriad of updates and rewrites. After the murders of 9-11, he decided it was time to share his research with the world. The product is "The Gulf War Chronicles."

Fairly accurate. I was there. The part describing RPGs coming at SFC Wiggin's Bradley is 100% inaccurate. They were hit from friendly fire out of 4-66 AR Bn. I saw the shots fired.
