Abstract:

"In this book, author Donald J. McCarthy, Jr., takes you through every engagement resulting in a successful MiG kill by U.S. Air Force or Navy aircraft. He also shows the actual airplane and, in many cases, traces the history of that airplane through several phases of its operational career. Arranged strictly by date, this compilation of informative stories and mission descriptions presents a very graphic picture of what the air war in Southeast Asia was really like ... This book is a compelling story of bravery, airmanship, and the cunning tactics used in aerial dogfights that made history, but will never happen again"--Jacket.
