Product Description

About the Author

B.K. Bryans was a teenage cowboy on two southern Arizona ranches before he became the young horse wrangler for a film company shooting western movies for television at the Old Tucson movie set. After two years at the University of Arizona, he entered the Naval Aviation Cadet Program in Pensacola, Florida, and became a carrier-qualified jet pilot at age twenty. As a naval aviator, Brian flew 3,669 hours in thirteen different types of aircraft, made 652 carrier landings (163 of them at night), and flew 183 combat missions in A-6 Intruders during the Vietnam War. He was awarded the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, and thirteen Air Medals. He went on to command Attack Squadron Thirty-Five (VA-35) aboard USS Nimitz. While in the Navy, Brian earned a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Operations Research & Systems Analysis. Besides his flying tours, Brian served as aide to the Senior Member of the United Nations Armistice Commission in Korea, aide to the Commander of the U.S. Seventh Fleet, and Chief of Special Studies for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He retired from the U.S. Navy as a captain. Brian then worked as a consultant and software developer before serving as a manager with the Arizona state government. He is now retired and resides in Tuscon, Arizona with his wife Pat.

Expected a more factual account of operations rather than a story written around a persons war story . However the book was an easy read which gave one a balanced view of that period of time

Set in the context of Vietnam in '67, this captures very well the life of an intruder crew operating from a carrier. Factually accurate, and a good read to boot.

I have read many books on the Vietnam War and this was as good as any. A good account of the air war from a naval aviators point of view. Highly recommend :-)

This book was a fantastic read I could not put it down.

It showed the idiocy of the US government and presidency who were too busy trying to win votes than getting on with the Vietnam air war with effect.

The targets that were selected cost lives and hardships to the aircrew and families which could have been avoided if the US had allowed the bombing of real targets.

All in all a book that kept my attention all the way through
