The MOAA said of War with Iraq: Critical Lessons, “Glosson planned and executed the incredible air campaign against Iraq during the Gulf War. Here Glosson tells his inside story, from his first days in the Saudi desert as Iraqi troops occupied Kuwait to the spectacular opening night of punishing air strikes to Iraq’s eventual retreat. He takes us to the White House, where he briefs the first President Bush on how the war will be won. He writes of private meetings with General Norman Schwarzkopf, and he describes his thinking on one of the war’s biggest gambles: his decision to rely on the F-117 – the first stealth aircraft sent to war – to penetrate Baghdad’s thick air defenses from day one and bomb must-hit targets. His book is informative, entertaining, and full of lessons for our future wars.”
