1965-1973 tells the dramatic story of Air Force and Navy flight crews who
battled the Soviet-built enemy MiGs in the war-torn skies over South-east Asia.
A vivid and detailed narrative describes all 202 MiG kills made by six different
aircraft types, and with every engagement arranged in chronological order. This
book also features the most complete photograph documentation on this subject
ever assembled. By using outstanding original, and military photography, much of
which has never before been published, this book shows 169 of the 174 aircraft
credited with MiG kills during the Vietnam War. It describes each aircraft with
serial number, tail code, operational unit, crewmember names, call sign, and
specific weaponry and tactics used in accomplishing each and every MiG kill made
from April 1965 through to January 1973. Ideal for historians and modellers
alike.
