The Unseen Gulf War

February 1991: An Iraqi Republican Guard soldier one year after the end of the Gulf War sits in a tea salon in the old city of Baghdad. He told me that he had been in the convoy of Iraqi soldiers that was strafed and bombed along the Mile of Death at the end of the ground war. He described the experience of running over the bodies of his fellow soldiers as he fled for his life amidst the bombing on this road. He described running barefoot in the desert all the way to Basra, as he escaped the aerial assault.
