Oil Field Fires in Kuwait


  The photographer writes: "Immediately after the war, 3AD units were often in close vicinity to many of the hundreds of oil well fires set by Saddam's forces when they realized they were about to be overrun by the coalition. The field in this photo was approximately 15 Kilometers [9 miles] south of the Kuwait-Iraq border and the town of Safwan, Iraq. I counted 62 wells on fire one evening."
