The Gulf & Afghanistan Wars

Imaginative Representations of the Gulf & Afghanistan Wars

This collection grew from the philosophy that in order to build collections about current events, it is best to begin while they are still occurring. This collection consists mainly of feature films and documentaries on the military operations of the last 20 years, including the Persian Gulf War- AKA Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm (1990-1991), the Afghan War(2001-), and the Iraq War- AKA Operation Iraqi Freedom, or the Second Gulf War (2003-). It is supplemented by a selection of print material.
