Saddam Hussein surprised the world with his invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. The question arose of what could the United States, and in particular U.S. air power, do to face the challenge. Paul Bloch, a MOF Docent and Naval War College professor, will discuss the development of the US strategic air campaign known as " Operation Instant Thunder" and its impact during the Gulf War.
