Great topic!
I am currently reading "Warthog: Flying the A-10 in the Gulf War". A must read for any hog driver. (Oddly I don't have the hog yet?)
Even though the Gulf war from a historical viewpoint was a quick "easy"win. Leading up to and fighting for those first few weeks was anything but easy. The author paints a picture of what a modern air war would (did) look like. Lots of unknowns. Lots and lots of AAA, scared of migs, long 8-10 hr missions. Hell the flight over from the states in the opening chapters had me about wetting my pants!

And Red Storm Rising was awesome as well. Just more bigger

Gen Sir John Hackett's books on WWIII are probably the best you will get on the subject.

Hello everyone, in our time it’s very difficult to find a high-quality and interesting game, but when you are obsessed with airplanes this game fits perfectly into your repertoire, I personally fly only on F-16, and many have encountered the problem of the inconvenience of a regular keyboard, but I recently found this site https://www.grelly.uk/video-games-consoles/ is where a very wide range of choices
