Liberation of Kuwait
On February 24 1991 the Allied Forces under the defacto command of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf moved to liberate Kuwait. The plan involved a wide flanking maneuver around the the right side of the Iraqi line of battle. This part of the attack was carried out by US, British and French forces. JFC-N and JFC-E comprised the Arab segment of coalition forces. Note the feint attack by the US Marines on the coast. This move effectively distracted a large part of Iraqi forces.
