North Vietnam, 1966. F-105 Thunderchiefs--and America's elite corps of fighter pilots who fly them--are being shot down in startling numbers over the Vietnamese jungle by the greatest array of sophisticated weapons ever gathered in one area. To combat the deadly missiles, the Pentagon scrambles desperately for a way to turn the tide of war. Their answer: the Wild Weasel, a technological demon that brings with it a new highly dangerous mission for Lt. Col. Mack MacLendon's 357th Tactical Fighter Squadron. Fighting their way through Soviet MIGs and SAMs, the courageous men of the squadron rise to the challenge, and suddenly an incredible air war has begun. The prize: the most heavily defended real estate on earth--and the lives of the men whose triumphs and tragedies will live on in their own special place in history.

Glenn Davis, USAF Ret.
