For those of you who intent to read his "Wings of War" series please read this first. If you served, especially if you served back in the 60s or 70s, and even if you did not serve in that area of the world you will understand his feelings. Feeling about real life and real events.
I didn't read this short book first but in his "Wings" series I knew exactly what he meant when he referred to arrogant civilian authorities having lunch in DC to pick not only targets but bomb loads and routes. Also understood his scorn for members of the media who trivialized the efforts and high price paid by those serving in our military, just as I felt then and still do. And today I feel that way towards the media with their treatment of those currently serving our Country. I am sure you will recognize the sections of his series relating to the movie female who made broadcasts from Hanoi calling our tortured POWs liars. And those bumper stickers are still in use.
In reading his "Wings of War" series I felt I understood exactly what LTC Berent was feeling. This short book was confirmation.
