BBC Twentieth Century Battlefields - Ep8 - Iraq - Worksheet to support the BBC Documentary
Written as an enrichment/flipped/independent learning activity the worksheet contains a variety of data collection activities for the video.
Dan and Peter Snow go to Kuwait to tell the story of Operation Desert Storm. Dan describes how revolutionary new technology like stealth bombers and precision-guided bombs would make this a battle unlike anything anyone had seen before. The Iraqis may not have had such cutting-edge technology but, back in 1991, they did have weapons of mass destruction - gas attacks were an ever-present fear amongst the Allied soldiers. Dan experiences how just a simple gas mask would have restricted a soldier’s ability to fight in such extreme conditions and Peter shows how both sides chose their tactics in a war dominated by cutting-edge technology and ruthless political calculation.
