Air Combat: A History of Fighter Pilots by Robert F. Dorr

In Air Combat, veteran and military author Robert F. Dorr has collected dozens of interviews from combat veterans who have experienced what it’s like to face the enemy in the skies above, from the first days of World War II to the current war on terror. 
Each story tells a first-hand account of what it’s like to be in the thick of the fight, describes the history, strengths, and weaknesses of each man’s plane in detail, and offers readers a rare glimpse into the minds and hearts of those who dare to fight in the air.

From the savage dogfights of World War II to the high-tech missile duels of today, those who wage war in the skies—and the machines they fly—are a breed apart. Pushing themselves to the cutting edge of speed and skill, their battleground is among the clouds—where every fight you survive is a victory.
These are their stories—in their own words.
