Abstract:

In the case of DESERT STORM, accounts of the contributions of the great newsmakers are hitting the shelves with regularity. Harder to find are the perspectives of the many who contributed their individual pushes to the war effort. This book focuses on the contributions of company grade Air Force officers to victory in the desert. The personal experiences presented here come from the heart of Americas fighting force. They are but a few of the thousands of stories produced by the war. Todays United States Air Force is one of the most complex of human endeavors-many thousands of people working together in hundreds of different specialties to defend America through control and exploitation of air and space. These specialties are interlocked and mutually supporting. This book may help you better understand how all that works as you read firsthand the experiences of the men and women who perform many of the specialties. In reading their stories, youll also gain a better appreciation for the men and women themselves. Theyre real flesh and blood people who traveled a great distance to take on a very difficult task-and succeeded spectacularly
