Publisher's Comments

In this work for historians, scholars, strategists, policy makers, and war buffs, Lambeth (Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments) offers a detailed narrative and assessment of the American and allied contribution to the three-week air offensive of Operation Iraqi Freedom, the military operation that led to the defeat of Saddam Hussein in 2003. The author reviews high-level planning, then describes air operations and provides vignettes from the perspectives of individual airmen during combat. The book concludes with a synopsis of what worked in the campaign, unanticipated problems, and how shortcomings could've been improved with in areas such as training, tactics, and equipment capability. A wealth of b&w photos and maps complement the text. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
