Publisher's Summary

As the ground war struggled for success in Vietnam, it became intensely clear that the skies had to be owned by the allies for victory to have a chance. It was the F-4 and its pilots that made that possible. The author, a Phantom pilot himself, details intense stories of undaunted and valiant American pilots with their legendary fierce Phantom. These are personal stories of intrepid courage and self-sacrifice to get the mission done - whatever the cost. Fierce, unflinching battles to save friendlies and destroy a ruthless enemy are all recorded 40 years later. True tales of war at 500 knots!

Great book terrible narrator

If only the narrator didn't make everyone sound like a "southerner" and the author didn't fill the book out with the same explanations in every chapter about "arming the bombs" etc we the readers do have a memory

Awful narration.

I have listened to over 75 books with many having being narrated by someone with an American accent. Please be clear; I have no problem with the accent of our Atlantic cousins and have enjoyed the vast majority of my Audible library. This specific book however, I could not complete owing to the almost comic or pop art inflection of the narrator who's efforts to add drama and accentuate points detracted from stories which are perfectly able to stand on their own. I didn't finish this book for this reason.
