Overview

The book is a photo-journalistic record of the vitally important role that aviation played in the recent war that toppled the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. It follows the part that American, British and Australian airpower played in each theatre of the campaign. It includes the many different missions that aircraft were tasked with such as precision bombing of strategic targets, support of ground forces, clandestine air drops, logistic support in the field and the relief of troops and civilians. All forms of military airborne activity are explained in a chronological order as the campaign progressed. The parts that carrier and land-based aircraft played in the initial build-up of Coalition forces, the first strikes at Baghdad, the taking of Basra, the rapid and record-breaking advance on the capital are recorded with dramatic action photographs and first-hand accounts of the events portrayed.
