5.0 out of 5 stars A book that I could not put down, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an ex Raf Halton apprentice myself, although an earlier entry I felt that the book brought back the memories of a time which was extremely formative in my life a time which also became the foundation of the rest of my life and my career in civvy street.

I ended my time as a SNCO and did not reach the dizzy heights of a senior officer , however the work ethic that I acheived in the air force gave me the confidence in achieving a similar role in civvy street.

A jolly good read and looking forward to reading the next chapter of "The Shropshire Lad" and hjis career in The Royal Air Force


Air America from World War II to Vietnam
Air America from World War II to Vietnam
by Christopher Robbins
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars It reads like fiction but its true, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant read could not put it down.

Does not put America government and the CIA in good light. But the guys who flew for Air America were a tough breed carrying out tough missions when legitimate action could not be taken.

I really do not know how America could criticise other regimes when they are as bad themselves with a multitude of dirty tricks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about an exceptional man, 16 Aug 2013

AVM Howe was my station commander at RAF Gutersloh in early 70's.

I did not realise in all the times that I helped to "strap" him in when he used to fly in our 92 squadron Lighnings, what exploits that he had experienced in his life as an F51 pilot flying in the SAAF in Korea, as an FAC in Korea and in Egypt.and that I would be reading about him all these years later.

I am now reading about this great man and remember what an aproachable person he was how his RAF career developed.

A great book about a great man

Made a grow box for growing super hot chilli plants, I had 2 types of bulb but the 45 watt is the bulb that makes them grow. My friend is also growing and he cannot believe how well my chillis are doing and this is thanks to the CFL lamp bulb

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts you right in the seat of air strikes in a war that should not have been lost, 28 Sep 2012

This review is from: Those '67 Blues (Kindle Edition)
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
