Retired Gen. ‘Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf dead at 78

The man who commanded the US-led coalition forces during the Gulf War against Iraq more than two decades ago has died according to an Associated Press source Thursday.

Retired Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, or “Stormin’ Norman” died in Tampa, Fla., where he had lived since retiring from the military. He was 78.

Schwarzkopf directed 700,000 coalition troops from some 30 nations that engaged in a six-week air assault of Iraqi forces in January 1991 after the Saddam Hussein-led Iraqi Army invaded its neighbor to the south, Kuwait. That was followed by a swift ground campaign that pushed the Iraqis out of Kuwait.

He served in his last military assignment in Tampa as commander-in-chief (CINC) of U.S. Central Command, the headquarters responsible for U.S. military and security concerns in nearly 20 countries from the eastern Mediterranean and Africa to Pakistan.

After retirement, the General lived a relatively quiet life with little public exposure.
