In this book, we will be taking a closer look at the Iraq War, which was fought from 2003-2011. Almost 4,500 American soldiers died during the war, and another 33,000 were wounded. Over 110,000 Iraqis, both soldiers and civilians, would eventually die in the fighting also. But do you know what led up to the war? In the next chapter, we will see how the Gulf War, fought in 1991, planted the seeds of the Iraq War. Specifically, the war that Saddam Hussein chose to deal with the international community caused serious problems and made other nations want to invade his country.
