New Book Release: Bricks in the Sand Pt. 1: Models from Operation Desert Storm built with LEGO Bricks
The Persian Gulf War followed the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait with a short conflict consisting of a U.S.-led coalition. Beginning in 1991, major military operations were short-lived as the Iraqi military was not prepared for the swiftness and precision of coalition forces. Although the conflict ended quickly, the failure to remove Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein from power would later result in the Second Gulf War of 2003.
The kits in this book are selected to give the builder a historical view of Operation Desert Storm. They depict modern military hardware, providing the builder with an authentic model that is finely detailed and enjoyable to build.
Each build includes full-color, step-by-step instructions for building 14 Desert Storm models.
