MiG-17 and MiG-19 Units of the Vietnam War by Istvan Toperczer
Book DescriptionThe erstwhile enemy of the Usaf and US Navy during the nine years of American involvement in the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese Peoples' Air Force (Vpaf) quickly grew from an ill-organised rabble of poorly trained pilots flying antiquated communist aircraft into a highly effective fighting force that more than held its own over the skies of North Vietnam. Flying Soviet fighters like the MiG-17, and -19, the Vpaf produced over a dozen aces, whilst the Americans managed just two pilots and three navigators in the same period.

Mig-17/19 Aces of the Vietnam War, Paperback (October 2016)
The Vietnam People's Air Force at the beginning of the Vietnam War were equipped with slow, old Korean War generation fighters - a combination of MiG-17s and MiG-19s - types that should have offered little opposition to the fighter-bombers such as the F-4 Phantom II, and more. This is an analysis of the exploits of Vietnamese pilots.
