Air War in the Persian Gulf
Williamson Murray analyzes the Coalitions conduct of air operations during the war against Iraq in 1990 and 1991. The book examines how the enormous concentration of air power in the Gulf helped or prevented the Coalition from reaching its objectives. This extensive study may be the definitive official history of the air war from the American perspective.
