Back Fire: The Tragic Story of Friendly Fire in Warfare from Ancient Times to the Gulf War by Geoffrey Regan

This startling & revelatory study presents a chilling expose of wars most incomprehensible tragedies: friendly fire, the euphemism commonly used for being killed by ones own colleagues or allies, presumably in error. Covering a sweep of history from the days of Alexander the Great to the 20th century — including Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands & the Gulf War — the author describes the incidents of friendly fire in detail & examines the causes behind them. This harrowing & engrossing study examines the truth behind the most tragic examples of military incompetence & sheds new light on a sadly ancient problem.
