Since the beginning of recorded history, Iraq and Afghanistan have been the center of conflict. This title in the Battle History of the USMC series tells the story of the Corps role in the latest wars in that region. After Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, the United Nations intervened with a stern resolution warning Iraq to withdraw, or United States and UN forces would drive them out. Iraq refused, and Operation Desert Storm began. With precise air operations, tenacious amphibious assaults, and versatile land tactics, the Marines led one of the most successful assaults in modern warfare. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States government declared a Global War on Terrorism. In response to the Taliban government s refusal to respond to known terrorist activities within their borders, Marines were deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. In 2003, Iraq became a second front in the war on terrorism with Operation Iraqi Freedom. Operations in Afghanistan are ongoing, with Marine responsibilities ranging from combat and security operations to humanitarian efforts. On May 2, 2011, Osama bin Laden was shot and killed inside a private residential compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, by US Navy SEALs and CIA operatives in a covert operation ordered by US President Barack Obama. Shortly after his death, bin Laden s body was buried at sea. This is the story of those operations, told through exclusive interviews and rare battle footage.
