Operation Desert Storm Overview -- Part 1

Season 1, Episode 3,   Jan 17, 2021, 08:30 PM

In this two-episode overview of the Desert Storm air campaign I interviewed Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Chris "SLAM" Gentry. In part 1 we discuss the context of the conflict, the key players in the air campaign, and the development of the air campaign plan.

The four primary sources we referenced are: "Storm Over Iraq" by Richard Hallion, "The Air Campaign" by John Warden, "John Warden and the Renaissance of American Air Power" by John Andreas Olsen, and "Every Man a Tiger" by Tom Clancy with General Chuck Horner and Tony Klotz.
