Internet Book Watch
Of the men and women who served in the American forces in the Gulf War, more than one hundred thousand of them came back from that unique conflict suffering from a variety of illness only to face a public and a government that was largely indifferent. It took years of exhaustive medical studies and public awareness efforts of activists to overcome the apathy (and at times outright hostility) of the Veteran's Administration and the Congress to recognize, acknowledge, and begin to deal with this phenomena. Highly recommended reading for students of twentieth century military history, political science, veteran's affairs, and the medical aftermath of service in the Gulf War, Alison Johnson's Gulf War Syndrome: Legacy Of A Perfect War is the complete story of this struggle against government denial and betrayal of the American service men and women who found themselves in harm's way while carrying out their country's mandate on the fields of battle.

Editor reviews

This is the book that was handed out to every member of the American congress.

It provides a well researched, impartial view of the events of the Gulf War, allowing the reader to come to their own conclusions.

Included is the testimony of both Gulf War vets and their families, describing what in their opinion went on, during and after the war. Content is also very good on the medical side with compelling evidence presented linking veterans illnesses with chemicals and chemical sensitivities. There is also enough here to warrant a reading by sufferers of CFS, fibromyalgia and similar disorders whose symptoms include chemical sensitivities.

One of the best books available if you are looking for a comprehensive view of the events of the Gulf War, not just a medical investigation.
