 This work is comprised of verbatim accounts taken from the pilots who flew the unarmed F-117 Nighthawk into the “mother of all battles” - and returned without so much as a scratch on their aircraft. Included are accounts of evading Iraqi fighters during the early days, fears of the “golden BB,” incredible secondary explosions, and re-selection of targets well after the release of a guided bomb. Included with the personal accounts are technical facts and details on the F-117 making this the most comprehensive book ever published on the subject. Includes maps and full color images of special squadron emblems and patches.
