From the Publisher"As one of the project's masterminds and its first commander, Peck delivers an account replete with first-person detail...The authenticity of Peck's narrative as well as the effectiveness of the project he helped conceive speak for themselves: During Operation Dessert Storm, American F-15 and F-16 pilots, many using tactics perfected during Constant Peg sorties, downed 40 Iraqi fighters, including numerous MiGs, without a single loss.." Air & Space/Smithsonian
"...the fascinating history of the men who trained to fly and maintain covertly obtained MiGs, for thr first time providing an insider's perspective, personal anecdotes, and photographs, revealing how Colonel Peck battled bureaucracy and skepticism to ultimately establish the premier fighter pilot training center -- the real Top Gun."
--Savannah Jones, www.sirereadalot.org
"chapters pack in a history of the pilots, the missions, and the military concepts behind them, making this a fine survey of the little-known Red Eagles project recommended for any military holding."
