The Military Channel in the U.S. is commemorating recently deceased U.S. Army General Norman Schwarzkopf with a night of programming, including an encore presentation of Greatest Tank Battles: The Battle of 73 Easting.

The Discovery Communications channel will revisit the 1991 Persian Gulf War to mark the career of Schwarzkopf, who passed away on December 27, and is most well known as the commander of U.S.-led forces in the Persian Gulf War which defeated the Iraqi army.

The dedicated programming on January 8 will kick off at 8 p.m. EST/PST with the encore presentation of Greatest Tank Battles: The Battle of 73 Easting, which details how the American 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment used superior equipment and training to overcome the tank battle.

Following at 9 p.m. EST/PST, Inside the Killbox: Fighting the Gulf War goes behind the scenes to examine the tactics and strategies used in the first Gulf War. The doc includes interviews with U.S. president George H. W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell and Schwarzkopf.
