  • Simple fellow
This book was suggested to me by a highly decorated fighter pilot who knows many of the characters, and who knew that I knew some of them. His contention was simple. This is the most accurate account of the Gulf Air War. And after reading it, I can't fault his claim.

But perhaps more importantly, this is a great book for anyone who wants to understand how large military bureaucracies work, and how they can fail while blood is being shed. It speaks volumes about real leadership, and counterfeit leaders, though Horner generally tries to avoid throwing any of his old colleagues under the bus.

If you are not a military history buff, or not a student of the anthropology of bureaucracies you may not agree with five stars, but the Tom Clancy passages are a "Reader's Digest Version" and vastly entertaining in many cases. If you don't care about all the details Horner has left for posterity, be sure you don't miss Clancy's comments, which are clearly marked.

An easy-to-read book, although readers not familiar with military terminology might find it encumbered with acronyms (there's no reference in the book). Although some portions might feel a little sentimental, it still offers a wonderful insight into considerations of a military commander, as well as some interesting bits of information about Gulf War air campaign (thoughtfully called "a thousand hour war, as opposed to much shorter ground part").

The main value of the book are Gen. Horner's comments, of course.

I just finished this book, and, quite frankly, I feel like I have just been through a war. As a US Air Force officer who was just starting out during the time of the Gulf War, I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time. I had already learned quite a bit about the Gulf War through other sources, but I was looking for a legitimate source of what was actually happening, on the ground and in the air, from a day-to-day perspective, and from somebody who had lived the experience.

This was the right book! The opening chapters introduce us to Gen Chuck Horner in an autobiographical approach. We learn what motivates him as a pilot, as an officer, and as a human being. We gain some insights from his experiences during Vietnam, and ultimately learn how that affected his approach to the Gulf War.

But the bulk of the book is about the Gulf War, and how the coalition forces made their decisions on the best way to approach the battle situation. My favorite partsin this book, were the "day-in-the-life" segments. We get to follow Gen Horner from the moment he wakes up, through briefings, visits to units, phone calls, problem solving, meetings with coalition partners, etc. to the minute he finally, gets to go to bed. We see and appreciate the job he does at the most mundane level, and yet understand how those small things lead to the big picture of war fighting. Gen Horner is generous in spreading the credit for successes and does not hold back in accepting blame when that is appropriate.

The only reason I didn't rate this book 5 stars is the lengthy explanations of air power and strategy. For those who are not familiar with such concepts, this information is vital, and so you should consider my rating to be 5 stars.

Finally, I appreciated Gen Horner's essay's on coalition building and the future of air and space power. I was fortunate enough to be assigned to Space Command for a short time before Gen Horner retired as CINCSPACE and from the US Air Force. And even though I was but a lowly Lieutenant, and never spoke directly with Gen Horner, I can tell you his impact on all of us was profound. As Tom Clancy states at the end of the book, "Gen Chuck Horner was the right man at the right time."

To help our fellow brothers in arms win and be allowed to conduct it properly without being micromanaged is a testimonial from past lessons learned!!!

Tom Clancy was great at making history interesting to read. General Horner is a great leader and a good man. This book tells his story well as well as the story of the Air Force during his period. Americans should be grateful to the service members and their family members who kept us safe during this period.

"Every Man a Tiger" combines an historical account of the U.S. Air Force's role in the 1991 Persian Gulf conflict, with a memoir of Gen. Chuck Horner, the senior Air Force Commander in Desert Storm. I found the section concerning Desert Storm lacking in interesting, substantive details concerning the Air Force's role in winning that conflict. It certainly was less interesting than Gen. Horner's candid account of the Air Force from the end of the Vietnam War to the present. I was fascinated by how our nation's political and military leadership allowed the Air Force to decline in the 1970s, and how the leaders of the 1980s rebuilt the Air Force to the world class military service it is today. Overall, a recommendable book, but certainly not as good as "Into the Storm," Clancy's first book in this series, with Gen. Fred Franks.

Very informative
Every Man A Tiger was very well written, as Tom Clancy's books always are. Having been involved in my career with radar systems for fighter aircraft, I found all of the details in this book very interesting.
