Historical Note

The Gulf War was an international conflict triggered by Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, ordered by Saddam Hussein. After ignoring the United Nations' call to withdraw, Iraq was subject to a ban on trade and several countries joined together to build up forces. The allied military offensive began on January 16-17, 1991 with a US-led aerial bombardment known as Operation Desert Storm. A cease-fire was declared on February 28, 1991.
