Hot Shots

(2000)
America's First Jet Aces
A non fiction book by

 
Fifty Years Ago,
The Skies Blazed Above Korea
Between 1950 and 1953, America was locked in a fearsome struggle to decide the fate of a relatively small pennisula jutting into the Sea of Japan. More than fifty thousand brave U.S. fighting ment gave their lives in this bloody conflict that has all but faded from public memory, a "forgotten was" that ushered in a modern age of jet-to-jet combat.Editors Chaney and Forstchen have gathered together the spellbinding account of America's Korean War aerial aces -- the "Hot Shots" who took to the Asian in their Mustangs, Sabres, and Shooting Stars to confront an overwhelmingly superior number of enemy aircraft. Through the vivid voices of real-life "top gun" heroes -- with their remarkable first-hand stories of courage, duty, and awesome ability -- an all important chapter in our nation's military history is retrieved from the shadows, a return to a time of exhilaration, terror, and glory when, more than before, control of the skies helped determined victory or defeat on the ground.
