9780891418719: Hammer from Above: Marine Air Combat Over Iraq

This book presents: a unique perspective of the air war during Operation Iraqi Freedom; first-hand accounts of the pilots who flew these missions; and it is written by an ex-Marine pilot. "If you've ever wondered what it is like to fly in combat, read this book." - Thomas E. Ricks, author of "Making the Corps" and "A Soldier's Duty". During the first two weeks of Operation Iraqi Freedom in April 2003, the US Army made rapid progress towards Baghdad, Basrah and the Rumalyah oilfields. During this swift advance, the Marines received vital air support in the form of attack helicopters, jet fighters, transport and various other support aircraft. "Hammer From Above" tells the story of the men and women who provided this support. On one mission, the crew of a communications helicopter found themselves fighting off hundreds of regular Iraqi and Fedayeen troops. Out of fuel and ammunition, they barely made it back in one piece. No other book on the Iraq War has examined the conflict from the perspective of the air war. With first-hand accounts of the pilots who flew on these missions, the reader gets a clear picture of what it was like to fly eighteen-hour combat missions under heavy enemy fire. From the build up to war to the vicious fighting in An Nasiriyah, the author, who was himself a Marine aviator, has been able to gather the extraordinary stories of the pilots who fought in this conflict.

Summary: Advance praise for Hammer from Above "Powerfula gritty insider's tale as only a fighter pilot could tell it." W.E.B. Griffin "This is the real thing, a solid and readable account of the role Marine air support played in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Jay Stout is a veteran Marine pilot who knows how to write, especially about Marine aviation. He understandsas only someone who has been there canthe hundreds of decisions a flier makes on a difficult mission, and he describes them memorably. If you've ever wondered what it is like to fly in combat, read this book." Thomas E. Ricks, author of Making the Corps and A Soldier's Duty "The 2003 ground war in Iraq has been thoroughly reported by embedded correspondents and those who fought it. Hammer from Above now brings an entirely new perspective to the conflict. Jay Stout unflinchingly portrays the battle through the lens of the Marines who fought in the skies above Iraq. He has skillfully woven the first-person stories of these men and women into a compelling tale of bravery and chance in the crucible of combat that will become an enduring part of the history of the Iraq War." Jon Hoffman, author of Chesty: The Story of Lieutenant General Lewis B. Puller, USMC "A brilliant and exciting battle account of the 'Flying Leathernecks' who bravely supported their brother grunts in Iraq. It truly captures the emotions, actions, and feel of that battlefield unlike any other writing." Gen. Tony Zinni, USMC (Retired) "A veteran aviator's superb account of a short, sharp war. A revealing portrait of airpower at its finestsupporting the riflemen on the groundJay Stout's book does a great service not only for the Marine Corps and our country, but for readers everywhere." Ralph Peters, author of Beyond Baghdad: Postmodern War and Peace From the Hardcover edition. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0891418717
