Another book to add to the library

Recommended Posts

Although its release was fairly silent, a new book on the NAVAIR legend Joe "Hoser" Satrapa, CMDR, USN (Ret.) was released back in July. The name of the book? "Hoser Here...Shoot!" This book is a compilation of the Hoser Chronicles thread over at Tomcat-Sunset.org, edited and with some amplification from myriad individuals on any number of the entries. The book chronicles Hoser's early life and introduction to the US Navy, combat over Vietnam in the F-8 Crusader and RA-5 Vigilante, ACEVAL/AIMVAL trials with VX-4, his current job with the California Department of Forestry as a firefighter in the S-2 among other things (not the least of which, his obsession with high explosives and firearms). The book provides insights in to air combat during war and peacetime from one of the most unique, aggressive, and skilled pilots ever to fly in the US Navy. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for insights into the pilot's perspective on air combat from Vietnam to now.


Current price is $23.99.
