Format: Paperback
As a former F-15E WSO in the 336TFS depicted in this book, I can say with absolute confidence that this is a totally accurate account of the Strike Eagle in Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Mr. Smallwood took great pains to interview as many of us that flew the aircraft as was humanly possible and he has MORE facts than the Air Force in terms of the leadership problems and difficulties in fielding a new aircraft with new crewmember in a combat situation. This book brought back laughs, sobs and the very smell of being in the jet! He described instances that I was involved in as if he were standing there when it happened. If you ever looked at the F-15E and wondered what it would be like; read this book! It is very accurate and reflects the emotions of going off to "war" and being in combat. All of us that flew the aircraft salute Bill Smallwood for his insight and commitment to accuracy.

This book has brought me hours of enjoyment as I have read it three times. It is hard to get enough of the real-world action that this book delivers. I would recommend it as an addition to anyone's library.

I was looking for some books on air-war (Afghan/Iraq/Gulf War) and came across this one from the States. The packaging seemed a bit bland and I am always worried about American view-points getting in the way of a good honest story... This book is a gem! it may only be about the F15, but remember these were the guys without 'Stealth'. And did they know it... oh yes! Highly critical, with dangerous missions, informative without loosing the plot, and a great read.

All a bit anodyne and ra ra. Great tales in there but obscured by not very interesting detail. Reads as if written for the pilots, not the rest of us.
