Gulf War looks back on the air war over the Gulf 25 years ago, as a US-led Coalition ousted Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Extensively illustrated with photographs from the conflict, including many from private collections, it tells the story of the air war in the Gulf from August 1990 to today.

With a history of Operation Desert Storm, including pilot accounts, and details of the aircraft and air forces involved, this 100-page publication is a must-have for those seeking to understand the conflict that changed the shape of warfare.
