On the 17th January 1991 the coalition forces began their war against Iraq to liberate Kuwait. The same day photographer Mike Moore of the Today newspaper was in uniform and had joined up with the 4th Armoured Brigade in the desert - the only photographer at the front line with the famous Desert Rats. The Foreword is by Richard Kay of the Daily Mail who was an official war correspondent with the 4th Armoured Brigade.
There is some slight scuffing to the cover and page edges, but all internal content is clean and unmarked. We believe this book is no longer in print.
