Defenders of Freedom - Eagle Series A:
Crisis in the Gulf
    Historical Images - 1991

Notes:  This set pictures scenes and equipment from the 1991 Gulf War (Desert Storm). In 
addition to the packs-in-boxes distribution, two different factory sets were produced: one with 
the 144-card base set plus one promo, randomly selected; and another with just the base set in 
a plastic case, numbered to 250.  As with other Desert Storm-related cards, the manufacturer 
hurried to release the cards while news of the Gulf War was hot, and there were a handful of 
errors in the first print run which were corrected in a second printing and distribution of packs 
and boxes.  Corrected cards are shown in the listings below. Thanks much to Richard Cheddie 
for the original checklist; Michael Beam for a wealth of information on the factory sets, promos, 
and error cards; and David Rosciszewski for an update!
