A Must Read

Recommended Posts

Just finshed this book:

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1580071104

 

This is one of the best books I've added to my collection in years. The author discusses the development of carrier-based jet fighters to 1962 with emphasis on the Navy's development and procurement process. It is this particular emphasis that makes the book unique. All fighter types from the FH-1 to the F4H are covered in good detail. A plus is that most of the photos in the book are ones that I had not seen before.

The wife has placed severe restrictions on my book purchases due to lack of space and inbound arrival of Jedi 2.0 in another 2 trimesters. :wink:

 

Too bad you can never find books like these at the library.
