Air Force (TAF) during the decade that followed. Detailing significant advances in combat capability that sprang forth from fertile minds cultivated in the crucible of combat, Anderegg argues that the creation of the Aggressors and Red Flag marked the Fighter Mafia's crowning achievements since both served to ensure that the fruit of their many innovations fell upon Allied fighter crews in the following decades.

My sister's son was Richard Honey. I was so glad I could send her this book.

The author presents a well crafted tale of a creative group of well educated fighter jocks who assembled at a unique place and time, and who were willing to objectively look at their mistakes and problems in order to improve their tactics and strategies. This book inspires the reader with a fighter pilot's practical and blatantly honest approach to problem solving that has applicability to many professions and, indeed, to life itself. A 'sierra hotel' read!

The decade after the Linebacker II campaign in Vietnam was absolutely one of the most interesting in the history of the US Air Force. Anderegg does a great job detailing the profound developments in American tactical air power in the years just after the Vietnam War. Ironically, the Air Force accomplished some of its greatest advancements following a despised war during a period of under-funding during an incompetent administration. Foreshadowing, perhaps?

Dick is the USAF Historian and could have been more honest if he didn't have the generals looking over his shoulder. The parts about flying and tactics were mostly correct. And, publishing the "Dear Boss" letter was good. However, he neglected to cover the fact that nothing changed. In some cases, the situation got worse as "leaders" worried more and more about things other than combat - to the point that, in the mid-90s, when I used the word "soldier" I was corrected and told "these days we're more business men than soldiers."
