A nonfiction book written by Tom Clancy which explores the inner workings of the United States Air Force's 366th Fighter Wing based out of Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho.

With an overview of the evolution of air power such as aircraft engines, stealth, avionics, sensors, and onboard displays, it also briefly introduces the B-2 Spirit and the F-22 Raptor. The following section focuses on Operation Desert Storm and its air campaign planners and the next on the combat aircraft found on the current USAF inventory. Ordnance is tackled as well as the creation of the Air Combat Command. A tour of the 366th Wing is presented in detail including the Green Flag exercise of 1994-3. A simulated scenario of how the 366th Wing may possibly be employed in a future conflict with Vietnam is also laid out.
