    USAF into the Present
    1979 to Today and Beyond, Pt. III
    Author: Robert F. Dorr

    Historian Robert F. Dorr concludes his three-part treatise on the postwar development of USAF airpower with the emergences of “black jets” and power struggles within the Air Force as the face of global conflicts changed.

    Wreck of the Hustler
    The Great Salt Lake claims a victim
    Authour: N. Connor

    When the Hustler departed into a flat spin only one crewmen was able to eject and the story of retrieving the bodies and the wreckage from the hostile environment of the Great Salt Lake makes for gripping reading. Told from the point of view of the salvage officer, as well as others involved, some intriguing problems are faced and solved.

    Author: Peter Purvis

    The Thanh Hoa Bridge was one of those targets that both sides in the Vietnam War saw as symbolic of their struggle to prevail. The US came back day after day and each time the Vietamese defended it with a savage barrage of AAA. Author Pete Purvis visited the bridge more times than he wanted, sometimes bringing back Vietnamese-induced holes in his Phantom.

    Into Despair
    Dodging bullets and politics in Africa
    Author: Robert Grant

    The author, a civilian contract pilot, attempts to be a humanitarian lifeline in strife-torn Darfur where thousands are starving, rebels shoot at everything that moves, including his aircraft, and politicians enjoy the good life.

    A Nation at War
    The mighty American war machine kicks into high gear

    It has often been said that the Allies won the war largely because the sleeping giant that was America was awaken and simply “out produced” the Axis. With an outstanding collection of factory photos, the armed armada that helped change the course of history is seen being born.
