Abstract:

"General Merrill A. "Tony" McPeak was the 14th chief of staff of the US Air Force. Below the Zone is the second installment of a projected three-volume memoir. The first book, Hangar Flying, covers the 1960s, years McPeak spent in fighter squadrons, doing air shows as a pilot with the elite Thunderbirds aerobatic team and flying combat missions in Vietnam. Below the Zone deals with the 1970s and 1980s, two decades McPeak spent climbing the promotion ladder from major to four-star general. It's about leadership and management in an organization that had to meet high performance standards, as the US continued its long congrontation with the Soviet Union. A final volume will cover General McPeaks's years as Air Force chief." --Back cover.
