True Accounts of the 20th Century's Most Dramatic Air Battles-- by the Men Who Fought ThemLarge Print - 1996
America's foremost writer of aviation fiction presents twenty-six of the most dramatic true stories ever told of men in aerial combat, from World War I to Vietnam. Here are authentic, unforgettable accounts of lives lived on the edge, at full throttle, of war at its worst -- and men at their best. Here you'll meet some of the greatest figures in aviation history and share some of their most thrilling moments. Stephen Coonts pays powerful tribute to the bravery and self-confidence of the 20th century's aerial warriors, and to the cold touch of fear and killer instinct that allowed these men to return to tell their stories. War in the Air is an epic of tragedy and courage writ bold across the sky.
