B-52 Stratofortress Units 1980-1999 by Jon Lake

Book Description

As the Cold War drew to an end the B-52's role began to change. While the B-52H remained committed to the nuclear strike role, older B-52Gs were increasingly pressed into service in the conventional role; they dropped about one third of the ordance delivered by the USAF during Operation Desert Storm and were a high profile element in the 'shock and awe' tactics of Operation Iraqi Freedom. This book details the recent combat history of this huge aircraft which has proved one of the most effective weapons available to US force commanders.
