The architect of the whirlwind coalition victory against Saddam Hussein in the 1990 Gulf War, Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf has passed away from complications related to pneumonia at age 78. Â He will be remembered by military historians for the way in which he designedÂ the air and groundÂ campaignÂ that resulted in what has come to be called the 100 Hour War. Â He also had some very memorable press conferences during the war.
Our thoughts are with his wife and children in their time of grief. Â May he Rest in Peace.
