Thereafter, the SR-71 roamed freely over areas previously denied to the vulnerable U-2, capturing photographic, radar and electronic intelligence. This book examines the immense impact this revolutionary aircraft had, not only on North Vietnam (Vietnam War, 1955-1975) but during the Cold War (1946-1991) as a whole, gathering information about the Soviet nuclear submarine fleet based in Vladivostok as well as the port's defenses, monitoring the actions of North Korea and flying four 11-hour, non-stop sorties into the Persian Gulf during the Iran-Iraq War in the late 1980s.

The basic story was good. There was not much on pilot selection, training or background. It did say about other flights that were made, but not much detail on these flights. For the price and the number of pages I felt as enlighting as I was looking for. I have at least 30 Osprey books on aviation and I found others more enlighting.Was this review helpful?
