Operation Desert Storm was a war like no other. Soldiers of the Gulf War were given thorough physical examinations, pronounced "fit for combat," trained to fight, and sent into a hostile environment to defeat Saddam Hussein's forces. Upon arrival, most were forced to wait and watch as technology did their job. After months of exposure to biological and chemical warfare, and only 100 hours of ground fighting, most soldiers returned to civilain life without so much as a token physical exam. What they brought with them as a result of experimental vaccines, radioactive depleted uranium, and pent-up rate, is just beginning to surface. The Unexpected Storm is Steven Manchester's personal account of his experiences before, during and after the Gulf War. A compelling tale of friends made and lost, battles anticipated but never fought, and promises broken.
