Air War Iraq - Tim RipleyPen & Sword, 2004, Paperback ..
Condition: Near Fine.
The three-week-long assault on Iraq in March and April 2003 was the culmination of well over a year's worth of preparation. This book looks at how US, British and Australian air commanders pulled together their plans and executed them to overwhelm Iraq's defences. This book tells the story of the build-up and the war from the perspective of the US, British and Australian airmen. Unfortunately little has emerged to date from Iraq's airmen and air defence troops, so their story can only be told in part. This is not an account of why America, Britain and Australia went to war against Iraq. That story is for others to tell. 144pp. Size: 4to Crown (9¾" x 7½")
