Does anyone know of a internet map that shows the movements and engagements of Desert Storm?

I think it would be interesting to see and very useful for folks studying military history.

See that green grape thingie in the red circle? That was me, (and a few others :-) )
See that red white and blue thingie on my left flank? That was the French.

So, . . . One day a French tank rolls into our camp for a little show and tell.

The French officer was a bit concerned that we might mistake the similar profile of their tank for a T-62 Iraqi tank. He expressed concern that we might stick an AT-4 up his tail pipe.

He went to great length to point out the differences in the silhouettes.

His English was good, with a strong French accent.

At the end I reassured him that he had no worries. We could never accidentally shoot a French tank due to our training and high morals.

He queried me as to exactly what training would guarantee that we would not shoot them by accident.

I responded that we, as American Soldiers, were trained never to shoot anyone in the back, while they were running away from a fight. Especially if they were waving a white flag.

That's when the fight started.

The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

I wasn't clear in my first post -- I was referring to things like Google maps where you can switch to satellite view and look at the actual terrain where they fought.
