Major Huston reviewed Joseph T. Stanik's El Dorado Canyon: Reagan’s Undeclared War with Qaddafi (2002) for the Air & Space Power Journal. The book covers the U.S. battle against Libya's state-sponsored terrorism in the 1970s and '80s. As Major Huston deftly summarizes, "El Dorado Canyon is an excellent analysis of two decades of US-Libyan relations and how the United States dealt with a state sponsor of terrorism. Joint air operations planners will benefit from reading this book due to the complex nature of the operation and detailed planning. Also, students of national policy processes can gain insight into how national-level policy is shaped."
