An experienced pilot himself, William L. Smallwood served in the Air Force during the Korean War and is the author of Strike Eagle: Flying the F-15E in the Gulf War and the highly acclaimed Warthog: Flying the A-10 in the Gulf War, both part of Potomac's series The Warriors. He lives in Buhl, Idaho.From Booklist:
This latest addition to the Persian Gulf War literature focuses on the 48 F-15E Strike Eagles that fought over Iraq and the men who flew them. The Strike Eagle, a two-seat attack version of the F-15 interceptor, was barely combat qualified when the war began, and those manning them had to cope with inexperience, spotty leadership, bureaucratic rigidity in higher command, the fatigue of two or three missions per day, and formidable Iraqi ground defenses. Both planes and crews acquitted themselves well, though; among other achievements, they became the backbone of the "Scud-busting" so crucial to keeping Israel out of the war. This thorough, readable account of state-of-the-art warfare is based on extensive interviews as well as documents and will be exceptionally worthwhile reading for those interested in aviation and the Persian Gulf War.
