{detailed description}Shield and Storm reveals the personal experience of some of the British and American pilots who served in the Gulf War, flying a variety of British Aerospace aircraft — Tornados, Jaguars and Harriers.
This book is a collection of interviews with these participants and some of the ground support staff, whose stories are told in their own words from when they first heard of their deployment to the Gulf until the end of the hostilities. Their experience of arriving in foreign countries which were totally unprepared at the start to accommodate them, of establishing their own bases and modus operandi, of flying endless sorties and of coping with many pressures of modern air combat are vividly portrayed.
Shield and Storm does not question the rights or wrongs of the Gulf War, but presents the human story of some of the combatants. In so doing, it also highlights the underlying similarities between the American and British behaviour in war, which are often concealed by apparent differences.
