Waiting for minimum critic reviews


As a Cavalry Scout Section Sergeant, author Delbert Abbott couldn’t understand why he felt troubled and upset about his part in Desert Shield/Desert Storm. He had taken part in the most decisive war in recent history, a ground war that he and those who served with him had won in only one hundred hours. Yet, for years he struggled to make his part of the war make sense.

It was only during this most recent campaign, Operation Iraqi Freedom, that he understood why he was so conflicted. This book tells the personal story of a Cavalry Scout Section Sergeant whose unit, 4/8 Cavalry, went from becoming deactivated to becoming a pivotal part of the victory of Desert Storm. Reading this book you will feel the sand blowing in your face, the heat radiating from the desert, and the apprehension in a young soldiers heart. This inside look at his life during this conflict will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you wish you had been a part of it.
