Book Review: Topgun: An American Story

 
You gotta love it when the whole Animal House Delta Tau Chi vs “The Establishment”  thing works out in real life again! Give a lowly Lt. Commander 6 months and spare change to fix the whole air warfare mess over North Vietnam and what do you get?  Topgun and a 22:1 U.S. Navy kill ratio.  A great saga by Dan Pederson of his Naval Aviation career.  My favorite part was the “Fight Club” in Whiskey 291 off San Clemente Island.  Compare this story to Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War. Definitely a “Golden Era of Jet Aviation.” (5 of 5 Stars)
