The Gulf War

The Gulf War (1996) Absolutely superb two-video Frontline assessment of the Gulf War, from the initial reactions to the invasion of Kuwait, the delicate coalition, the air attack, the war, and the messy aftermath. Incisive commentary tarnishes such war-time "heroes" as the Patriot missile and "Stormin Norman" Scharzkopf. One personal caveat--little focus on the smothering military censorship that shaped the Gulf War spot reporting.
