On the last day of February 1991, President Bush stopped a war that had been devastating for the Iraqis but a confident victory for the Allied forces. Now Iraq's Kurds are fleeing to Iran and Turkey in their thousands in fear of massacre by Saddam Hussein's forces. Ben Brown was in Riyadh for most of the Gulf War, and in Kuwait City when it was liberated. David Shukman was monitoring the air and ground war from London. Here they talk to key participants - pilots, Iraqi and British soldiers, American generals - to analyze the causes and conduct of the war and the Kurdish crisis that followed it. They look, too, at the "secret war" played out by human and satellite intelligence and Britain's SAS, and at disinformation - were the Allies led to overestimate the prowess of the Republican Guard and the number of its troops in Kuwait?
