Get rid of this crap by registering your own SA Forums Account and joining roughly 150,000 Goons, for the one-time price of $9.95! We charge money because it costs us $3,400 per month for bandwidth bills alone, and since we don't believe in shoving popup ads to our registered users, we try to make the money back through forum registrations.

There was a ton of bs marketing stuff around the war. I had a Norman Schwartzkoff doll.
It was the first war getting 24-hour cable news coverage, so it was also some of the DoD's earliest experiments trying to market for the television age. It's pretty fascinating. Like a commercialized version of WW2 movie theater propaganda.
