When people talked about air combat in Vitenam, what's the aircraft accrossed your mind first ? Probably F-4. But there were also other aircrafts in that war, especially F-8 for Navy. F-8 was the last fighter designed with more than a pair of cannons in the US military aircraft inventory. A lot of people knew F-4 or F-104 , even A-4. but fewer books talked about this excellent MiG master. From the development to the combat assignment, readers can find great details of combats of those Navy and Marine fighters faced. he author did a good job to tell another part of the air combat stories in history.
