As with Warren Thompson's other Korean War books, this is a must have, especially if like me the F-86 Sabre is your favourite Jet fighter.
For those of you who may not already know, the 51st Fighter Wing was the unit that the 1958 film 'The Hunters' which starred Robert Mitchum, was based on. Indeed, F-86 pilot James Salter, pen name of James Horowitz, no doubt based parts of the book on what he had seen as a Korean War serviceman.
As with the 4th FIW book by the same author, lots of great pictures and recollections from the pilots who flew this great Jet.
