    1. As I flipped through this book, and saw a few swearwords, I was expecting to cringe every other page. To my pleasant surprise, though, there weren't that many instances of foul language. There were some- and don't get my wrong, none of it's acceptable- but it is a book relating men's experiences with the War, after all.

    2. As stated at the beginig of this small volume (a tad over 200 pages), the air conflict in the skies of Korea isn't very well covered, especially when compared with WWII or Vietnam conflict.

    3. Great aviation related stories plus adding the total history of this 'forgotten war'. Told in chronological order with stories from both carrier wings and the Air Force as well. Summarizes many parallels to what later happened in Vietnam. The military forgot many of the lessons learned in Korea in less than 20 years. Highly recommended.
