In this story of an underdog and the interaction of the military, politics, and technology in America, Campbell leads the reader through CAS history prior to the A-10's inception and shows how Air Force history and doctrine confronted factors such as the Vietnam War and the Army's super attack helicopter, which led the Air Force to build the Warthog. The author uses the aircraft's turbulent developmental and operational life to highlight a relatively neglected aspect of air combat history, and the book's wide historical scope sets it apart from others on the subject.
