Product Overview

"A welcome addition to any aviation buff''s bookshelf. . . . [I]t is addictively engrossing and a must read for anyone interested in a close-up view of the Vietnam air war."--Air Power History: *Hair-raising descriptions of aerial combat as seen from the cockpit of a fighter jet*Thoughtful reflections on what it meant to fight in Vietnam: As the Vietnam War raged thousands of miles away, Mike McCarthy completed his flight training in the United States, eager to get into the war and afraid it would end before he could participate. He needn''t have worried. By 1967, he was flying his F-4 Phantom II fighter with the U.S. Air Force''s 433rd Tactical Fighter Squadron, also known as Satan''s Angels. Before his tour ended, McCarthy completed 124 missions during the intense air war over North Vietnam and Laos and earned the Distinguished Flying Cross. His memoir recreates the horror and exhilaration of air combat.
