Know to many as Stormin Norman, General Schwarzkopf became a household name as the military leader of the 1991 Persian Gulf War against Saddam Hussein’s military. Although criticized for supporting ending the war too quickly and the leaving of Saddam Hussein in power, the rest of the world saw him as a charismatic leader as he gave his almost daily press conferences on television.
General Schwarzkopf was a decorated Vietnam veteran and a West Point graduate. He died in Tampa Florida on 27 December 2012.
