In 1983 the execution by firing squad of Grenadian Prime Minister Maurice Bishop, together with seven of his close supporters, triggered the largest US military operation since Vietnam. In the 3-day invasion, code-named "Urgent Fury", 14,000 of the 20,000 troops involved received gallantry decorations. "Urgent Fury" was proclaimed a triumph for the Armed Forces, coming at a time when US morale was low. The author was the Caribbean Operations Staff Officer for the operation and he gives here an eye-witness account.
