Warthog: Flying the A-10 in the Gulf War
By William Smallwood

A must read for any Hog fan. Gripping accounts of action in the Gulf War. Also shows how the Hog earned its place in the air force by it (and its pilots) being bloody good at what they were doing. The A-10 was going to be scrapped but after it’s fantastic performance it got an upgrade instead!

    I’m reading Warthog right now after your recommendation, it’s a very good book and hard to put down.

    Thanks for the heads up.
