5.0 out of 5 stars new details brought to light, 2 Mar. 2006
This review is from: F-16 Fighting Falcon Units of Operation Iraqi Freedom (Combat Aircraft): Vipers Over the Desert (Paperback)
this book contains some excellent accounts of the F-16s involvemnt with the cloak and agger aspects of Operation IRaqi Freedom amongst which is an account of the aircrfats part in the rescue of 50+ members of the SBS (you may remember news reports at the time showing iraqs celebrating the capture of a land rover near mosul in late march 2003). there are also accounts from f-16 pilots operationg out of jordan, which had only previusly been rumoured. the book is not a work of propaganda to glorify the US military in fact the author draws attention to numerous failures perhaps the most important being the failure of bombs dropped from an F-16 failing to explode during an attempt to kill Saddam's cousin "chemical Ali". the only down side this is book is the accounts from pilots engaged in Suppression of enemy air defence (SEAD) missions as after awhile it becomes quite repetative all-in-all a good read
