{detailed description}RAF Flight Lieutenants John Peters, pilot, and John Nichol, navigator, were the 'ordinary' two-man crew of a Tornado bomber when the Gulf War broke out. Shot down by a SAM missile, they became extraordinary when their tortured faces, battered beyond recognition by their Iraqi interrogators, flashed across the world's television screens. In that instant they became the symbol of Saddam Hussein's brutal regime, an image of suffering that was engraved on the public's mind.
Tornado Down is their story. It is a graphic and painfully honest account of the hectic build-up to war, the intense excitement of operational training and actual combat and, in sudden and stark contrast, the humiliation of imprisonment and torture, followed in the aftermath of war by the heady emotions of release and the pitfalls of unsolicited media attention.
By turns appalling, moving and improbably funny, Tornado Down is a riveting account of modern aerial warfare. It is also the private voice of war, a triumphant affirmation that humanity can and does prevail in the face of abuse and suffering.{Author / Publisher / Date}by Flt. Lt. John Peters and Flt. Lt. John Nichol
