2.0 out of 5 stars too much technical jargon, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raven One (Kindle Edition)
This book was only marginally enjoyable, and very hard work. The author really didn't manage to put you in the cockpit and instead pummelled you with technical detail from every angle.

I do recognise that he has potential to write good books though, and should take a lesson from ed rasimus who wrote "when thunder rolled". Rasimus really takes you into the skies with him but doesn't fill the book with technical details.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent account of a cold war era career in fast jets, 19 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Never in Anger (Kindle Edition)
I thoroughly enjoyed this first account from a man who seems very down to earth for a hot shot fast jet pilot . The author had a long career in early raf jets and seemed very fortunate to be in the position of being among the first to fly Britain's most iconic fighters, the early hunter and lightning marks. The author even got to fly the "thud" during an exchange tour with the USAF at Nellis AFB alongside American pilots who would ply their trade over Vietnam
I can't recommend this book enough and as I write this, the current price is under £2

5.0 out of 5 stars compelling and unputdownable, 15 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
having read a lot of aviation books in the past including classics such as Stuka pilot which is a must read for anybody into military aviation, this was actually my first book on the vietnam air war. To say that I started with a band is a huge understatement.
the Author takes you through the standard journey from first flying lesson, all the way through to gaining his wings of gold and on to flying the "thud", the sleek aluminium bird with a great big donk that could take it up to twice the speed of sound. But he doesn't waste too much time on this, yet still conveys well the immediate love that he had for this powerful aircraft.
But what I truly enjoyed about this book was how well he relays the sheer level of fear that he experienced during the build up to his first mission over north vietnam, his mind continually searching for any escape from the possibility of facing enemy fire, becoming a POW or dying alone in a single seat aircraft. There is no over-macho, gung-ho theme to it, he really is a normal guy who has the same fears that surely we all would face in the same position.
At the same time, you really do get a sense of challenges these men faced not just in the face of the enemy guns and missiles, but also of the poorly thought tactics of the superiors, and politicians, fighting the war from offices in washington.
The author gives you a thrilling account of what life was like having to complete 100 bombing missions over north Vietnam when statistically, you could only expect to survive on average for 66 of them.
