Description:

From the preface:

This monograph was written from mid-1991 to February 1992 and consists of events and issues from the perspective of the I MEF commander, Lieutenant General Boomer, who incidentally made the historians’ job infinitely easier by recording all of his staff meetings.

This work appears to be arranged chronologically. It has both an index and subject descriptive chapter headings in the table of contents. The work concludes with three appendices.
