Desert Warrior: A Personal View of the Gulf War by the Joint Forces Commander

Front Cover
HarperCollins, 1995 - Generals - 492 pages
Desert Warrior is one of the most remarkable documents to come out of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first book ever written by a member of the Saudi royal family, it is the candid, uncensored autobiography of HRH General Khaled bin Sultan, nephew of King Fahd and a leading prince of the House of Saud. It is the first time a true insider has ever described the decision-making process within the royal family, the unique dangers and challenges of the Middle East environment and the complexities of the Saudi-American relationship. Of particular interest is its chronicle of the desert prince's role in the Gulf War. With gripping anecdotes and startling information, General Khaled describes his rise to international fame as the leader of 25 of the 37 contingents of the coalition forces, his efforts to protect the sovereignty of his country in the face of an overwhelming American presence, his work in keeping the alliance against Saddam Hussein from foundering and his sometimes stormy relationship with General Schwarzkopf. -- Description from (June 4, 2015).
