This is the second of two parts of a review article on some of the key historical books written in English on military operations in the Persian Gulf from 1990 to 1991. Where the first part focused on the important operations and technological developments surrounding the air war, this second part discusses those works on the operations of ground (army and marines) and naval forces, professional studies, memoirs, some books on non-U.S. military operations, and finally some general or popular works on the war. Although increasingly viewed, even by historians, as little more than a historical footnote to the tumultuous events in the region after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the subsequent invasion of Iraq in 2003, studies on the Persian Gulf War, often referred to by their U.S. operational names Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, have given us a rich and important literature on the military aspects of the war and the state of the military profession at the end of the Cold War. The Gulf War was viewed at the time as an important test of U.S. political resolve after the retreat from the wars in Southeast Asia in the 1960s and 70s, and an equally important test of the rebirth of the American military. It is more than merely a prequel to later operations in Iraq starting in 2003. The article concludes with a listing of all 60 major works discussed in Parts I and II.
