This volume is about the special pilots and the missions they flew in Operation Desert Storm during the Gulf War. Built around a two-ton, 20-foot-long Gattling gun, the Warthog was very successful in its Desert Storm baptism of fire. With the full co-operation of the Air Force, the author interviewed over 100 A-10 pilots immediately after the war. The hangar-talk of Fish, Gator, Growth, Fannspeed and the other "Hog drivers" tells the story of the A-10s unlikely rise to glory, and what it's like to fly combat in a plane so ugly that it was dubbed the Warthog. William L. Smallwood is the author of "Strike Eagle: Flying the F-15E in the Gulf War".
