Matt
100 Missions North was gripping in that Bell was able to describe air battles so well. Bell was honest about his emotions which gives the reader an insight on how it was for Bell. There were times I felt I was in the cockpit with him. If you have enjoyed Jack Broughton or Ed Rasimus' books then 100 Missions is a good suggestion. Bell flew with Broughton and has a good take on him. This worth the read for anyone interested in the Vietnam Air War.
