Booknews
In his maiden literary flight, aviation historian Bruning characterizes the Korean War as a crossroads, a last hurrah for one generation of tactics and technology and the proving ground for the next. He details 20 aerial actions, among them the first air rescue of a downed pilot, the Battle of Carlson's Canyon, the first dogfight of the war, and the death of the first African-American naval aviator.
