Book concentrates on the experience of American fighter pilots in Vietnam and the Gulf War. Following their careers through flight school and detailing their exhausting technical and physical training, the author finds that combat pilots are boisterous, rowdy, macho overachievers. Author personalizes his narrative by interviewing scores of pilots and allowing them to tell their own stories. Throws much new light on those crucial hours, during which one American aircraft was probably lost to an Iraqi jet in an incident officially denied, then and now.
