In the 1970s the USMC bought the AV-8A Harrier from the UK whose VTOL capabilities allowed it to serve as a tactical aircraft that could deploy with Marine forces on amphibious assault ships and provide air cover and close air support from large deck aircraft carriers. Third in a trilogy on US Marine Corps Harrier IIs in combat, it will be the first volume to cover the whole story of the AV-8B's service employment during peacekeeping operations and then in Afghanistan. With profile artwork for all frontline AV-8B units detailing the unique colours and markings applied by each squadron, this volume presents the widest variety of first-hand accounts of AV-8B air operations and missions by pilots and ground forces involved in Operation Enduring Freedom published to date.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Recommended. OEF was a long war, but there wasn't much coverage of the aircraft used. This book fills in a gap in the USMC air history. And it's got a great update on how CAS has evolved in the digital age." --IPMS/USA

..".offers the final book in a trilogy covering the Harrier IIs, and offers a fine survey of the plane's use in air assaults and modern efforts up to 2013. With artwork for all the Harrier II units and photos from pilots who flew the jets, this covers the Afghanistan campaigns and offers the latest insights and tactics." --James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review (October 2014)

..".an interesting read and anyone who likes the AV-8B or this period of history should pick this one up." --Scott van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (August 2014)
