General H. Norman Schwarzkopf—known as “Stormin’ Norman” to may Americans—is one of the most popular and respected military leaders in the history of both the United States and the world. A graduate of West Point and a veteran of the Vietnam War,Schwarzkopf used his many years of experience as a soldier and commander in the armed forces to prepare him for his ultimate challenge. As soon as Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded the neighboring country of Kuwait and attempted to seize control of its valuable oil supply, the forces of the United States and its allies were put on alert. A large group of nations formed a coalition intended to work as a collective unit to stop the Iraqi offensive. Leading those coalition troops would be an extremely talented American military leader—General H. Norman Schwarzkopf.
