US Marine and RAAF Hornet Units of Operation Iraqi Freedom by Tony Holmes

Book Description

Hornet units were in the vanguard of first strikes in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and this book draws on material from the author's unprecedented interviews with Australian and American combat veterans to provide a remarkable insight into their operations with the RAAF and US Marines in Iraq. The RAAF detachment in Iraq represented the Australian Air Force's first deployment in an overseas theatre since the Korean War. This book examines the combat roles of RAAF and US Marine Homets throughout OIF, including their support of the drive towards Baghdad, and detailing the impressive array of US ordnance that they dropped or launched in the course of the campaign.
