After his capture by elite Iraqi forces, Captain Bristol Wong uncovers a brilliant piece of intelligence in HOGS #5: TARGET SADDAM – Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein may be en route to a small village only a hundred miles behind enemy lines. It’s a long shot, especially for skeptical CentCom generals who don’t want to risk their assets for such slim odds. But Colonel Michael “Skull” Knowlington pushes for action, volunteering his A-10A Devil Squadron to set up an ambush for the Iraqi leader. Because it’s not just Saddam he wants – Wong also believes he spotted downed rookie Hog pilot Lieutenant William “BJ” Dixon in the area. If there is any chance at all that BJ is alive, Knowlington, Hog Devil Squadron leader Captain John “Doberman” Glenon and wingmate Captain Thomas Peter “A-Bomb” O’Rourke want to be the ones to bring him home.
