About this title

Synopsis:

The U.S. used its armored ground forces with devastating effect in DESERT STORM – the last major land campaign of the 20th century. Tuskers is the story of 4-64 armor battalion, a U.S. tank battalion at the tip of the devastating assault on the Iraqi army. The Tuskers were part of the 24th Infantry Division, the first mechanized division to deploy to Saudi Arabia as part of the DESERT SHIELD defense. After months of preparing in the desert, they led the sweeping left flank attack into the Euphrates River Valley – an attack that went farther and faster than any ground attack in the history of warfare. The Tuskers attacked through the Iraqi 26th Commando Brigade and into the Republican Guards logistics area astride Highway 8 near An Nasiriyah. After severing the Iraqi army’s escape route to Baghdad, they continued east on Highway 8 to the the outskirts of Basra. In the final battle of the war, the Tuskers destroyed much of the Iraqi Republican Guards Nebuchadnezzar division as it attempted to escape across the Euphrates River. “Tuskers” is a narrative that describes the unit’s deployment, preparation for combat, and their overwhelming success in combat. It focuses primarily at the battalion and company level, detailing not only the actions taking place, but also the thoughts of the men behind the guns as they face combat for the first time.

From the Back Cover:

"Tuskers" is a story of both DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM through the eyes of a solider.  It is a story of courage and trust, training and preparation, of technology and competence.  While the professional question-askers may argue the outcome of the Gulf War from the political-military perspective, in my view there is no such debate regarding the performance and abilities of ground combat forces -- the men and women who man the combat vehicles, drive the trucks, and fly the helicopters.  This is a story of one such group of soldiers.  Dave Pierson has captured the essence of this effort and has brought it to life for all of us.
