Desert Burning: A Marine’s Gulf War Experience

by Rick Greenberg

Desert Burning is an action-packed story skillfully told by retired Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Rick Greenberg. Following Vietnam, Rick leaves the Corps in an attempt to keep his family together. Unable to shake the memories of that war, he finds a friend who shares his nightmares.
Following a major life tragedy, Greenberg rejoins the Marine Corps. Coming up through the ranks at a time when the Corps was lacking equipment and a readiness for war, Corporal Greenberg’s first task is to deal with a squad of mutinous Marines.
When Staff Sergeant Greenberg finds he will be Engineer Support Company’s lead convoy commander in the upcoming invasion of Kuwait, he wonders if he’ll survive.
When the desert is set ablaze, no one knows what Saddam Hussain’s next move will be.
The scenes Greenberg masterfully draws in Desert Burning are both realistic and gripping. They will easily have you ducking for cover as the bombs explode.
Desert Burning is a great read that tells it like it was in America’s first desert war since 1943. Learn the true story of Operation Desert Storm from the eyes of an enlisted marine who was there.
