Really had a brilliant strategy in the Gulf War. Iraqi thought our main forces were coming from the south from Kuwait, he had used them as a diversion while he sent the bulk of the armored cavalry around their flank through the desert and hit them hard on from the rear. This after 100 days of air bombing to take out their communications and ability to see what he was doing.

Brilliant tactician and one of the reasons (along with superior firepower and highly trained military personnel) that we had so few casualties in that war.
