Fortune Favors Boldness: The Story of Naval Valor During Operation Iraqi Freedom (Paperback)
'Fortune Favors Boldness' is the motto of the U.S. Navy's Cruiser-Destroyer Group 1 (CCDG-1). That team led the Constellation Strike Group throughout 2002-2003, when 'America's Flagship, ' USS Constellation (CV 64), made its historic last deployment to the Arabian Gulf to support Operation Iraqi Freedom.
FORTUNE FAVORS BOLDNESS--this book--documents the incredible professionalism of the Sailors and Marines who operated in harm's way in the dangerous waters of the Northern Arabian Gulf, on the ground in Iraq and in the air over the country in 2003. It tells a story of epic events and bravery from the perspective of retired Vice Admiral Barry Costello, the commander of this force.
