Recently I had the opportunity to receive a copy of Dan Hampton's latest book Lords of the Sky. I just started reading it yesterday.
I am enthralled.
If Lt Col Hampton flew his F-16 anything like he writes, I would not want him on my six. Although I am not that far into the book his grasp of his subject matter is pretty impressive.
Not only are the mechanics of flight discussed in such a way as a complete neophyte will get it but his descriptions of air combat are gripping. He also delves into the background of the conflicts involving fighter aircraft.
Appropriately enough, I'm in the World War One section (like I said, I just started yesterday) and this is one of those books which is very hard to put down. (I really had to force myself to do so in order to write this post!)
|The cover art is superb!|
Hhmm, how did that beer get there?
Just wanted to give you all heads up on this book. I shall report again later on (when I've finished it) but right now...
Well, I have a book to read.
Oh, before I forget, Lt Col Hampton has a website, go, visit.
I note that he has other books out, which I simply must have.
This is the Sarge,
There are a number of purists in the audience!
