MILITARY CHANNEL SALUTES THE LIFE AND CAREER OF GENERAL NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF WITH NIGHT OF PROGRAMMING REVISITING THE 1991 PERSIAN GULF WAR

(Silver Spring, MD) - The Military Channel announced today it will dedicate a night of programming on Tuesday, January 8 starting at 8PM E/P, to commemorate the celebrated career of retired General Norman Schwarzkopf, who passed away last week. General Schwarzkopf led the allied forces to a routing of Iraq in the 1991 Persian Gulf War, becoming one of the nation's most celebrated military heroes of the era.

A graduate of West Point, General Schwarzkopf's early military career included a tour of duty in Germany as an aide-de-camp to the Commanding General of the Berlin Brigade in the early 1960s, followed by a tour of duty in Vietnam. Nicknamed "Stormin' Norman" by his troops because of his perceived temper, General Schwarzkopf became a national hero seemingly overnight while overseeing the buildup of 700,000 coalition troops, including more than 540,000 U.S. forces, after Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990. The Gulf War began on January 17, 1991, with the start of the nearly six-week air campaign against Iraq that was followed by a lightning100-hour ground offensive that pushed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's forces out of Kuwait.

To better understand General Schwarzkopf's remarkable service to the country during this conflict, the Military Channel will air special encore presentations of the following programs which take an in-depth look at the tactics and strategies behind the Gulf War:

GREATEST TANK BATTLES: THE BATTLE OF 73 EASTING

Special Network Presentation: Tuesday, January 8 at 8PM E/P

The 1991 Gulf War's 'Battle of 73 Easting' is the one of the most studied tank battles of modern times. In this one-hour episode of this groundbreaking series, the Military Channel details how the American 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment used superior equipment and training to overcome a blinding sandstorm and hundreds of tanks manned by Iraq's elite Republican Guard.

INSIDE THE KILLBOX: FIGHTING THE GULF WAR

Special Network Presentation: Tuesday, January 8 at 9PM E/P

INSIDE THE KILLBOX: FIGHTING THE GULF WAR goes behind-the-scenes and beyond the headlines to examine the tactics and strategies of the first Gulf War. Featuring rare interviews with President George H.W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and General Schwarzkopf himself, this in-depth documentary reveals the true nature of the Gulf War, moving past the politics of the moment and delving deep into the actual conduct of the campaign.
