In the tradition of his Vietnam Journal, writer Don Lomax presents an insider’s look at America’s 1991 conflict in the Persian Gulf. Mixed with factual accounts of Operation Desert Storm is the story of Scott “Journal” Neithammer, Lomax’s fictional journalist, known for his daring reports from the front lines. Neithammer’s willingness to put his life on the line in combat situations earned him the respect of the soldiers he wrote about. But Vietnam took its toll on “Journal,” just as it did to many veterans of that war. He’s been living in seclusion for years, and wants no part of the Iraqi situation, but the discovery that his own daughter is in Israel—yet another country threatened by Iraq—once again sends Neithammer into the midst of war.Lomax manages to stuff a veritable encyclopedia of facts about the conflict and the military technology involved into his story, without sacrificing any of the readability.
