When Thunder Rolled: An F-105 Pilot Over North Vietnam by Ed Rasimus
Product Info Item# 100636436
Ed Rasimus straps the reader into the cockpit of an F-105 Thunderchief fighter-bomber in his engaging account of the Rolling Thunder campaign in the skies over North Vietnam.
Between 1965 and 1968, more than 330 F-105s were lost - the highest loss rate in Southeast Asia - and many pilots were killed, captured and wounded because of the Air Force's disastrous tactics. The descriptions of Rasimus's one hundred missions, some of the most dangerous of the conflict, will satisfy anyone addicted to vivid, heart-stopping aerial combat, as will the details of his transformation from a young man paralyzed with self-doubt into a battle-hardened veteran. His unique perspective, candid analysis, and the sheer power of his narrative rank his memoir with the finest, most entertaining of the war.
