RIP General Schwarzkopf- a true soldiers soldier.
A poster wrote that he was cautious on the battlefield- I heard it slightly different- that he didnt endanger the men under his command unnecessarily,
and played the long game, building up his forces until overwhelming rather than charging in blindly.
Also remember he played a part in pulling a big deception on Iraqi forces during desert storm, making them think there was to be an amphibious
landing, thereby pinning down many military assets guarding the coast and building entrenched positions.
