This is the story of the "thousand hour war" as it was fought by the RAF; as viewed by the young men and women sent out to the Gulf initially to reinforce the air blockade against Iraq but who went on to play key roles in both the air and land wars that followed. Charles Allen, the author of "Plain Tales from the Raj" and "The Savage Wars of Peace", has woven together the personal experiences of more than 140 British airmen and airwomen to tell the inside story of what the RAF termed "Operation Granby" and the rest of the world knew as operations "Desert Shield" and "Desert Storm". Accompanying the text are over 150 hitherto unpublished photographs from private and squadron collections.
