Overview

Bandits over Baghdad by Warren E. Thompson

Many argue that the Gulf War was won largely by the Lockheed Martin F-117A Nighthawk, better known as the "Stealth Fighter." This book provides insight into a high-tech war as seen through the eyes of the pilots who flew the black jets into the heart of Baghdad. Thompson shares stories told by the leaders, pilots, and mission planners who worked together to compile a record unheard of in any prior war.

This work details, in very personal terms, the experience of a small cadre of highly-trained pilots who opened a new chapter in the use of stealth technology and extreme pinpoint precision bombing. Included with these personal accounts are technical facts and details of the F-117, making this one of the most comprehensive books ever published on the role of the Nighthawk in Desert Storm.
