The NATO-led Operation Allied Force was fought in 1999 to stop Serb atrocities against ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. This war, as noted by the distinguished military historian John Keegan, âmarked a real turning point . . . and proved that a war can be won by airpower alone.â Colonels Haave and Haun have organized firsthand accounts of some of the people who provided that airpowerâthe members of the 40th Expeditionary Operations Group. Their descriptionsâa new wingman's first combat sortie, a support officer's view of a fighter squadron relocation during combat, and a Sandy's leadership in finding and rescuing a downed F-117 pilotâprovide the reader with a legitimate insight into an air war at the tactical level and the airpower that helped convince the Serbian president, Slobodan Milosevic, to capitulate.
