In 1991, the entire world watched as the first President Bush marshaled a global coalition to confront Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and gave him an ultimatum: leave Kuwait by Jan. 15, 1991, or we'll force you out. In this landmark book, Robert Stanek, veteran author of The Pieces of the Puzzle and many other bestselling books, provides an inspiring story of family, honor, and duty in the midst of the Persian Gulf War.
Extraordinary in its scope, beautifully written, Stormjammers combines a riveting first-person account of the secretive world of Electronic Warfare with the sensitivity and insights of an acclaimed writer steeped in history, tragedy, and inspiration, to deliver a masterful account of airpower's role in the Persian Gulf.
Never before has the secretive world of Electronic Warfare been made so bare, been so utterly rendered, and so utterly personal. Stormjammers is intensely fascinating and as detailed as a Clancy novel with vivid descriptions of the intense electronic warfare operations of the Persian Gulf war.From the Author:
