THE INSIDE STORY OF THE DESERT STORM AERIAL WARFARE, TOLD BY ONE OF ITS HEROES

During Operation Desert Storm, the author piloted his F-16 in 30 combat missions, from the bombing of Iraq's nuclear research facility to attacks on the notorious "Highway of Death." In Vipers in the Storm, he recounts these experiences in searing "you-are-there" detail, giving readers one of the most riveting depictions ever written of man and machine at war.

Vipers in the Storm accurately reflects the decisive role that the United States Air Force played in defeating Saddam Hussein's military and liberating Kuwait. It is a superb account of modern air warfare. Most of all, it is a reminder of how enormously fortunate we are that there are young Americans like Keith Rosenkranz able and willing to defend the nation.

-- from the Foreword by Vice President Dick Cheney
