The Unseen War offers a comprehensive assessment of the role of allied air power in the three weeks of major combat that ended the rule of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein in 2003. Unlike in the earlier Operation Desert Storm in 1991, the contribution of air power in the second war was less readily apparent to most observers, since the land offensive began concurrently with the air offensive and the overwhelming majority of the deployed journalists who reported on the war were embedded with ground units. Lambeth’s work fills a longstanding gap in the literature on modern warfare by telling, in full, the story of the role of air power for the first time.
“Ben Lambeth reconstructs the exceptional performance of CENTCOM’s air component during the first phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom in a way that reminds us of the indispensable role played by airmen in a war that has since been overshadowed by a decade of land-focused counterinsurgency and counterterrorist operations.”
—Adm. Vern Clark, USN (Ret.), Chief of Naval Operations (2000–2005)

“There is much to be learned about the application of modern air power from that conflict. Ben Lambeth has once again written a comprehensive and thoughtful account of a recent air campaign that should be of interest to any professional student of the third dimension in warfare.”
—Eliot A. Cohen, Robert E. Osgood Professor of Strategic Studies, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies
