War in the Air
Stephen Coonts

Armchair aerial warriors will want to cinch up their seatbelts for Stephen Coonts's War in the Air: True-Life Accounts of the 20th Century's Most Dramatic Air Battles-by the Men Who Fought Them. The best-selling novelist (Flight of the Intruder) presents excerpts from 25 classic accounts of combat in the skies (from Frank Elkins's The Heart of a Man, from Ted W. Lawson's Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, etc.), as well as one original piece, his own essay on the Vietnam exploits of "the last American ace," Air Force Captain Steve Richie.

Never before has there been a collection of real-life tales of aerial warfare drawn from so wide a range of sources: American, British, German, Japanese, and more. You will see firsthand what it's like to skim the clouds in wood-and-fabric biplanes with the daring young men who flew and fought by the seat of their pants; you'll climb into the cockpit of the most technologically advanced fighting machines, piloted by men of consummate skill, instinct, and intelligence. You'll sit in the bombardier's bay as flak explodes around you, experience the rush of adrenaline as a helicopter skims the treetops in battle, and take off from the swaying deck of an aircraft carrier and fly straight into a dogfight fought at the speed of sound.
