This chapter deals with the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait (August 1990). This was the beginning of a new conflict in which the Iraqi Armed Forces were involved that included three stages: the occupation of Kuwait, the preparations towards the anticipated conflict with the coalition countries; and the war itself, “The Mother of all Battles” War (Operation Desert Storm), January - February, 1991 and ended with the absolute defeat of the Iraqi Army and its expulsion from Kuwait. It describes the first stage of the conflict, the Iraqi plans to conquer Kuwait in the 60th, the Kuwaiti crisis and the Iraqi decision to take Kuwait, the planning and preparing for the operation, and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait by the Republican Guard forces.
