The Unseen Gulf War

The Unseen Gulf War

February 1991: An Allied Forces helicopter patrols above the burning oil fields in Kuwait. Before retreating from Kuwait, Iraqi forces blew up many of the oil rigs and refineries in Kuwait, resulting in a mass number of oil rigs burning out of control and leaving the skies black. It took over a year for foreign specialists to put out these fires and restore the rigs.
