National Forces in Desert Storm

Does anyone know the numbers/proportions of different national forces that were involved in Desert Storm? I seem to recall that the UN forces were fairly heavily U.S. dominated, but I cannot find any figures to back that assumption up…

All help gratefully received


This page gives numbers for the various nations involved on the UN side, from the U.S. (540,000 troops, 6 aircraft carriers, submarines, 4,000 tanks, 1,700 helicopters, 1,800 airplanes) to Honduras (150 troops). It looks like the U.S. rather easily supplied more than half the total allied troops, although it’s sort of hard to say for sure, since they don’t break down every country’s contributions by numbers of people (just how many sailors were on that Polish hospital ship?)

Thanks MEB - just what I was looking for…
