Summary
"This study is an examination of the armor/antiarmor aspects of the Marine Expeditionary Forces' (MEF) experiences in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. The paper looks at all elements of the topic, but primarily concentrates on the special characteristics of the theater, the ground engagements, and finally the application of air power in the antiarmor role. Other relevant, but much less developed themes, are combat support and service support, command and control, reserves, fratricide, nuclear, biological and chemical warfare, and doctrine and tactics. It concludes that the allied success against Iraqi armor was more a function of the extremely poop quality of the Iraqi soldier and the particulars of the theater, than it was to any training and/or equipment advantage the allies might have enjoyed." -- page v
