The battle of 73 Easting was fought on February 26, 1991 during the Persian Gulf War. It is famously known as the last great tank battle of the 20th century. It is also one of the shortest battles. Fun fact: this documentary is longer than the battle itself, which lasted 20 minutes.

The battle was between the United States armored forces of the VII Corps and the forces of the Iraqi Republican Guard and its Tawakalna Division.

The battle took place several hours after another, smaller tank battle known as the Battle of Al Busayyah.

The US main unit in the battle was the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment.
