I got this book because I flew jets in Korea in the 80's and am very interested in the air combat that took place during the Korean War. Although this book, at times, reads like a college textbook, I found it to be very interesting and informative. If you get this book, I would suggest you have a map of the Korean peninsula handy for reference (unless you've been there and know where all these places are). You will be amazed at the overwhelming odds against the U.N. pilots had to overcome.
If you're a fighter jock (like me) or a history buff, this book is for you.
If you want to read a book on the specifics of being a fighter jock at the time, I'd suggest, "The Hunters," by James Salter, who flew Sabres during the war.
