Magnum! the Wild Weasels in Desert Storm: The Elimination of Iraq's Air Defence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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.

REVIEWS

This is an absorbing and informative book, combining technical topics with amusing and authentic verbatim accounts of operational experience, enhanced by copious and informative appendices. Recommended.

The Journal of the Royal Signals Institution, Vol XXVIII, Summer 2009, No. 1.

... a from- the- trenches view of the tactics, dangers, success, failures and annoyances of daily life... a very personal tale, a look inside the mind and cockpit...
