The author uses his unique knowledge and network of contacts to describe the meticulous planning of this massive undertaking, which involved the mustering of land, sea and air forces from thousands of miles away. He examines the logistical and political problems that at times appeared insurmountable and the nail biting tensions and maneuvering behind the scenes conducted under conditions of extreme pressure and secrecy.
His account of the military operations once hostilities began in such dramatic fashion makes for riveting reading drawing as they do on the experiences of those who fought in the front-line and in the air. The book also delves into those curses of modern warfare, friendly fire incidents and collateral damage, and why, even with all the marvels of modem technology, we still cannot prevent tragedies happening.
