Booknews
A glorified kill-by-kill history of the US Navy's first supersonic aircraft, and top gun in the air war over Vietnam. First published in 1980; updated to include the plane's American retirement in 1986, and its continued use by the French and the Philippines. The index is little more than a string of personal names. For buffs and exhaustive collections. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
