Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Crimson Sky fills a long-felt need in the literature of the Korean air war, for it combines a broad overview of the war with intimate details that put you in the cockpit. Showing his mastery of the subject, author John R. Bruning covers far more than the fabled bouts of the F-86 and MiG-15, and in doing so, shows us how very proud we should be of the men who fought ‘the forgotten war.’ The many personal accounts lend an immediacy to the book that makes it a real page-turner. The skies over Korea were in truth crimson, with the blood of brave American men who flew under extraordinary political handicaps.”

"You don't know the Korean War unless you've read this book."
