Super

Written by a master story / history teller . He writes with humor and sadness but above all with recounted honor. The smells, tastes and indeed visions of people, places and things leap from the page. The love and brotherhood of fellow aviators is made evident. His description of dinner in Tokyo transported me to places I remember. A masterful book and a must read for anyone interested in Naval Aviation during Vietnam.
