Book Review – F-15C/E Eagle Units of Operation Iraqi Freedom

F-15C/E Eagle Units of Operation Iraqi Freedom (Combat Aircraft 47)
Steve Davies
Osprey
2004

What it’s about:

The role of the mighty Eagle and Strike Eagle in the Iraq invasion of 2003, plus Operations Northern Watch and Southern Watch leading up to that invasion.

What I liked about the book:

  • The typical Osprey treatment of the subject, both in terms of text and illustrations.
  • First-hand combat stories, as told by aircrew.
  • A good description of the uses and limitations of avionics and weapons.

What could have been done better:

  • This book would have been better with a map.

Summary:

Another book by the master chronicler of the USAF F-15 community.

Rating:

5 stars out of a possible 5.
