Gulf War general Norman Schwarzkopf dies

General Norman Schwarzkopf, who led US forces during the first Gulf War, has died at the age of 78.

Dubbed 'Stormin' Norman', General Schwarzkopf was in charge of the coalition forces sent in to expel Saddam Hussein's troops from Kuwait in 1991.

His death was confirmed in a Facebook post by former US secretary of state Colin Powell.

"With the passing of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, America lost a great patriot and a great soldier," the post said.

"Norm served his country with courage and distinction for over 35 years. The highlight of his career was the 1991 Persian Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm. "Stormin' Norman" led the coalition forces to victory, ejecting the Iraqi Army from Kuwait and restoring the rightful government.

"His leadership not only inspired his troops, but also inspired the nation. He was a good friend of mine, a close buddy. I will miss him. My wife Alma joins me in extending our deepest condolences to his wife Brenda and to her family."
