Delta Force in Iraq WareBook - 2016
This is the amazing true story of one of Delta Force's missions deep behind enemy lines to eliminate the Scud missile threat in the first Iraq War in an area known as 'Scud Boulevard.'This true story is every bit as amazing in many respects as the fammed SAS Bravo Two Zero story. Delta Force played a vital role in hunting down and destroying the Scud missile threat in the Iraqi desert during the first Iraq War. Once inside Iraq, the teams set up covert observation posts along main supply routes. When found, the teams on the ground would call in coalition strike aircraft to bomb the targets which they would paint with hand-held laser designators. Some Delta ground units drove in on hastily-modified HMMWVs, accompanied by Fast Attack Vehicles and motorcycles. Others airlifted to and from their areas of operation by MH-60 and MH-47 helicopters from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment and by AFSOC MH-53J Pave low IIIs from the 1st Special Operations Wing, based at Al Jouf. The hunt for Scud missiles was hard; due to the mobility of these launches. These mobile launches needed to be found fast and eradicated to prevent Israel entering the war leading to political disaster. It was down to the Delta Force and the SAS to go in deep behind enemy lines and destroy them. At times being totally surrounded by Iraqi forces and having to fight their way out. This book also covers the capture of Saddam Hussein by Delta Force in the second Iraq War. --Provided by publisher.
