Israeli Fighter Acesby Peter B. Mersky
This is the first account of the individual experiences and backgrounds of what many people consider to be the most successful group of combat aviators of the post-World War II era. More than just a general history of the Israel Air Force, this book presents, in chronological order, specific personal recollections of these highly trained, highly motivated pilots: the cream of their small nation's society.
sraeli Fighter Aces recounts names, individual engagements, and individual claims with material never before seen in the West and only previously known to a small circle within the IAF. Never has such a wide window been opened on this unique and fascinating subject.

A very well documented history about the Israeli pilots who fought from 1948 to mideighties. The personal interviews of the pilots telling their experiences is the highlight of this book.I recommend this book to any aviator or to anyone who has an interest in history.
