Magnum! The Wild Weasels in Desert Storm : The Elimination of Iraq's Air Defence, Paperback / softback Book

Magnum! The Wild Weasels in Desert Storm : The Elimination of Iraq's Air Defence Paperback / softback

Description

This book is based on 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 were 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.
