MAGNUM!  THE WILD WEASELS IN DESERT STORM.  THE ELIMINATION OF IRAQ'S AIR DEFENCE

Details

This book is based upon a journal Jim Schreiner kept during his deployment to the Persian Gulf region for Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM. Building upon that record and the recollections of other F-4G Wild Weasel aircrew the authors show a slice of what life and war was like during that time. The pawns in the game the ones that had to actually do the fighting and dying were the hundreds of thousands of men and women who left their homes and families to live for seemingly endless months in the vast trackless desert while the world stage-play unfolded. To them the war was deeply personal. At times the war was scary at other times it was funny as hell. Usually if you survive the former it turns into the latter.
