Head into battle with the outnumbered Marines who defeated an Iraqi assault on Saudi Arabia.
- Based on the book "Storm on the Horizon".
- TIME MACHINE recreates historic moments in time.
- An inside look at Saddam's thwarted invasion of Saudi Arabia.
On January 29, 1991, Saddam Hussein launched his three best armored divisions across the Kuwaiti border and into the Islamic Holy Land of Saudi Arabia. Scattered groups of lightly armed U.S. Marines were caught without warning in their path.
This feature-length special tells how these elite fighting men escaped the enemy onslaught and then reversed the assault with an unprecedented combination of high-tech weaponry and old-fashioned Marine know-how. Based on the book Storm on the Horizon and featuring extensive commentary from the author and many of the Marines who faced the Iraqi assault, this is the gripping story of the first battle of the Smart-Bomb Age.
