B-52 Remembrances

Price: 0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: B-52 Remembrances (Kindle Edition)
Reading about the old "Buff" was really good and had some wonderful insights into Jet Bomber Operations in the 1960's. I was surprised by some of the things that went on and there are a couple of sad tales in this book that are part and parcel of any new Technology.

If you thought you knew all about the Sea Harrier or the Falklands Conflict, Think Again!! "Sharky" Ward Blows the Lid off of some Popular Misconceptions Surrounding some of the major events at that time and the Operation of the Aircraft whilst there. There is a definite Political Edge to this Book and Be Warned he pulls no Punches in His Analysis of the Administration and Hierarchy Surrounding the Conflict in General. That said I couldn't put it Down!!

Very good Book, but Didn't make it to the end. I found Half way through it got a bit repetitive on the stories and experiences with this Aircraft. That said if you are a Lightning Fan it IS worth a Read!!

Very well written with informative operational recollections and amusing anecdotes. It is written by the same guy who wrote "B52 Days" and is a view into the 1960's Supersonic Bomber, the Technology operating then and the attitudes of the time.

If you want to know How we got to the Moon from President Kennedy's Speech Through to Gene Cernan's last Steps on the Moon, then this is an Essential read for you. Be Warned though it does go through a lot of the Politics and Committee Stuff, but once you get through that stuff it is an Entertaining Read. There are credits for Pictures and Documents which did not show up on my Kindle, I don't know if this is deliberate or not?
