Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of training prior to and during Desert Shield on the performance of Service and Joint forces during Desert Storm. Our forces trained extensively and won the war. Voluminous records on training accomplishments were produced but not saved and assembled centrally for analytical review and lessons learned. Data on performance during combat, which would have great value for determining the effects of training, tend not, with a few exceptions, to identify the individuals who were involved. Recommendations are made for collecting, organizing, and using training and performance data during peace and war and operations other than war.
