SchwartzkopfWASHINGTON — Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., the hard-charging U.S. Army general whose forces smashed the Iraqi army in the 1991 Gulf War, has died at the age of 78, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

Schwarzkopf, a burly Vietnam War veteran known as “Stormin’ Norman,” commanded more than 540,000 U.S. troops and 200,000 allied forces in a six-week war that routed Hussein’s army from Kuwait in 1991, capping his 34-year military career.
