About the Author

Phil Kukielski is a career journalist who worked as a writer and, later, a managing editor of the Providence Journal in Rhode Island over the course of four decades. He lives in Fairfax, Virginia.


This is a terrific book. I thought I knew a lot about the Grenada operation, but I can't tell you how much I learned from it. Actually, I can. I learned a lot. ...impressive...fascinating...outstanding...details are chilling...This is really a tour de force--it will become the seminal work on Operation Urgent Fury, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested not only in the Grenada operation but to those interested in coming to grips with the Reagan Presidency."-Stephen F. Knott, Naval War College, Newport, RI
