Wings of Fury by Robert K. Wilcox
Book DescriptionDrawing on the experiences of Vietnam combat pilots and the new generation they taught, Robert Wilcox traces the rise of today's fighter pilots and the transformation of aerial warfare. Wilcox takes us into previously classified territory with an unprecedented look at the first shoot-down of enemy planes by US fighters since Vietnam, and follows the pilots as they grow, learn, and finally test themselves in the Gulf War. The men are a rowdy, macho group - overachievers whose greatest challenge is keeping their planes in the air and their skills combat ready. From training in Nellis, Miramar, Oceana, and bases throughout the world, to combat from Vietnam to Desert Storm, WINGS OF FURY tells the exciting story of the warriors who defend the skies, and the dramatic evolution of air warfare in our time.
