This book reveals the documents from Gorbachev's archive that relate to the Gulf War and more broadly to the Middle East at the final stage of the Cold War. The author states that the Middle East was an important front of the Cold War---second only to Europe. This non-fiction book sets out incidents and communications that occurred either in the Middle East or about the Middle East and how Russia had a finger in the pie. It is related in a history book type manner and will be interesting for all readers who have always wondered about some of the events of these times, which are even quite recent. Although we readers have to rely on the honesty of the author, there are facts related that make sense. I recommend this book.
The Kremlin archives, quoted by the author, paint a very different picture of the impact Russia has had on the world than the one so often fed to us by the media. Russia is already becoming a topic of discussion in the 2012 US presidential election. With the current President assuring Russia that his reelection would allow for "flexibility," and one of the leading candidates to oppose him in November declaring Russia our "number one geopolitical foe," every US citizen ought to arm themselves with the facts detailed in Behind the Desert Storm.
Best line of the book: "Gorbachev lies even when he is telling the truth."

I downloaded this book because the wars we are in now seem to make very little sense. This book confirmed, for me, how wrong the Bush Administration was jumping in to this war.Published on March 8, 2013 by Barbara
This book sheds no insight on the revolutions sweeping the Arab World. The stolen materials are over 20 years old and not particularly informative. Read morePublished on May 12, 2012 by John E
This is the most informative book, I have ever read. My jaw keeps droping. I don't like what I am reading, but these are things we all need to know. Everyone should read this book. Read morePublished on May 10, 2012 by John Spraberry
