This is a 1992 American documentary film directed by David Douglas.
The Invasion of Kuwait in 1990, also known as the Iraq-Kuwait War, was a major conflict between the Ba'athist Iraq and the State of Kuwait,
which resulted in the seven-month long Iraqi occupation of Kuwait, and subsequently led to direct military intervention by American-led forces
in the Persian Gulf War, and the torching of 600 Kuwaiti oil wells.
These oil wells were out of control, ignited by retreating Iraqi troops.
Supported by more than 10,000 "oil-disaster specialists" from 40 nations, they battled the "Fires of Kuwait" and won.
It is a fascinating, thrilling and totally mind-boggling documentary you have never seen before.
