The dominance of American air power became evident during the first Gulf War, a 43-day conflict with minimum casualties. This deeply researched volume probes the little-known story of how the Gulf War air campaign plan came to fruition. Takes the reader into the planning cells where the difficult work of building an air campaign plan was accomplished on an around-the-clock basis.
