The air campaign that opened the Gulf War in January 1991 was one of the most stunning in history. More than 100,000 sorties were launched as American and other Coalition aircraft pounded enemy targets with 88,000 tons of bombs. This book reconstructs events through the eyes of the strategists who planned it and the pilots who flew the missions.
