In 1991, the United States achieved the most lopsided victory over a near-peer competitor in modern military history. Facing not only the fifth largest military in the world at the time but also one that had been recently battle-tested in an eight-year war with Iran, the US 3rd Army completed Schwarzkopfs famed left-hook in five days, completely capturing Saddam Husseins forces off guard and hastening the ending to Operation Desert Storm. It was a stunning victory for the United States in its first post-Cold War test of strength.
